Boulder Community Gem Tucked Away
It is almost a bit embarrassing to mention that in all the time I’ve lived in the Boulder area, I’ve never known of the Green Mountain Cemetery. This is absolutely a community gem, tucked away at the back of the of the Bluebell and Chautauqua neighborhoods. This amazing final resting place is filled with iconic views of the majestic Flatiron mountains. A brief glance reveals that it is the final resting place of many of Boulder’s initial inhabitants.
As final resting places go, this is an amazing cemetery. The views are stunning, the grounds immaculate and feeling serene and peaceful. And, I’m not ashamed to admit it, somehow I’ve never noticed the cemetery before. This vast sixty acre site is close to so much I love in Boulder and yet, just tucked away enough that I’ve never noticed it before.

Though not the subject I would normally think of – the end, I think this is a very lovely space. Amazing views, mature graceful trees, a calmness in the air. And it is always interesting, to find a new space in the place you call home. Sometime, I hope to have the opportunity to revisit Green Mountain Cemetery and walk about. To really take in serenity of the place and also the history, the reminder of those who came before.
