Boulder, Colorado

Yesterday we went into Boulder, Co. Everything is so beautiful here. Still having a little trouble with the high altitude. We went on the Celestial Seasonings tea factory tour. It was really interesting to learn how they blend their teas. We went into their Mint Room where they store there mint leaves, which are peppermint, spearmint, and catnip. Yes, there is catnip in their Tension Tamer tea because it has a calming affect on humans. The mint smell is so strong that if they left the door open all day you would be able to smell the mint 2 miles away. The mint is stored in a sealed room so that the smell can't contaminant the whole factory.

After we left the tea factory, we went to the Boulder Ice Cream factory tour. It is a small factory that makes their ice cream in batches as it is ordered. We bought a bunch after the tour. Good ice cream.
