No pilgrimage to Boulder is complete without a trip up The Canyon to Nederland (which is kind of like Peter Pans Neverland oddly enough). This mountain paradise is home to the flower -children hippies of yesteryear (and there's enough broken down VW busses laying around to prove it). Go with an open mind and a mission to connect with the locals. From there who knows where things will go. Hitchhiking Boulder Canyon is a great option for getting to Ned.
