Nestled in the Flatirons of the Rocky Mountains, Boulder may be small, with only just over 100,000 inhabitants, but its personalities are vast. “This Is Boulder” is a series by CUIndependent.com photographers with the goal of visually defining what it means to live 5,430 feet above sea level.
This week, CUI photographer Matt Sisneros searched every tower, staircase and balcony for the best views around the University of Colorado campus.
Here is what he found and how to get there:
8. Visual Arts Complex (VAC), fifth floor
7. Join Institute for Lab Astrophysics (JILA), 10th floor
6. UMC balcony
5. Farrand Field
4. Folsom Field, sixth floor balcony
3. Folsom Field from the northeast side of the stadium

Boulder residents woke up early on Sunday to flames dancing over the Sunshine Canyon ridge, forcing evacuations and over 200 firefighters to the scene with air support to try to control the fire. By Jackson Barnett
