Snapshots of the National Center for Atmospheric Research and Mesa Trailhead (Boulder, CO)

Masa 1

The National Center for Atmospheric Research (NCAR) is a family-friendly and interactive museum, which teaches visitors young and old about the weather. The museum building was designed by I.M. Pei (perhaps most well-known for his glass pyramid in front of the Louvre Museum in Paris). Nearby are popular hiking paths, including Mallory Cave, a 2.7 mile trail that leads to a final 100 feet rock climb.
