The Flatirons

One of the iconic landmarks as you drive into Boulder, Colorado is the rock formation called The Flatirons. There are actually 5 Flatirons. This image shows Flatirons 3, 4 and 5. These were named by pioneer women who thought they look similar to the flat metal irons used to iron clothes. It’s the symbol of Boulder and has been used in many logos, advertising and other marketing for the city of Boulder.

I’m not sure why I passed up this image the first time, but decided to process it after looking at it again. This was taken last summer after a sunrise. The Flatirons serve as a nice backdrop to the Silver Lupine in Chautauqua Park in this image.
