Thursday, 10th of April, 2014

For those interested in hiking to the mountains, we will be leaving from the lobby of the Boulderado at 9am and head to the top of Flagstaff Mountain (weather permitting). We will be taking a route similar to this: Pack a lunch with you, or we will purchase some food for lunch as soon as we set out, and we can eat at the top. At that point we can decide to head back or find other trails. Bring lots of water with you, sunscreen, a hat and a few layers of clothing since the weather can be unpredictable.


To get from Denver International Airport to Boulder you can either take the bus (here is the schedule), or the Super Shuttle van service, or you can take a taxi.

If you take the bus, it will be labeled “AB”, cost $13 and take you to the Boulder Transit Center, which is 5 blocks from Hotel Boulderado. Here is how to use the bus schedule. The times on the left-hand column are departure times. For instance, the last two busses for the day are 11:45pm (1145p) and 12:41am (1241a). You will be taking the bus all the way to the last stop at the Boulder Transit Center and the arrival times are in the right-hand column. (The last two busses will arrive at 12:44am and 1:44am.)

The Super Shuttle will take you right to Hotel Boulderado, but you should call ahead and see if you will need to make a reservation and see how much it will cost. They number is 1(800) 622-2089 ext. 2

To get from the Boulderado to the CAN Lab on Wednesday morning go to the bus stop around the corner from the Boulderado. Start at point A on the Map of important locations and take the Skip Bus to campus. A Skip Bus comes by every 5-10 minutes and will cost $2.25 per person (exact change). Use the map to find your way to the Muenzinger Psych Building. The conference room will be on the fourth floor in room D430.

If you have any questions, you can contact Brandon Tutt via email ( or mobile phone (1-720-252-6881).
