Spotted on Pearl Street, Boulder, Colorado

 

Pearl Street is the heart of downtown Boulder.  Much of this street is a pedestrian zone, with lots of shops, restaurants and buskers.  It's a lively place in the evening, filled with people, conversation and music.

During our last visit to Boulder, we wandered to Pearl Street and found one of the most unusual car displays I've ever seen.  One vehicle in particular was a tribute to rock and (*I think*) especially to Freddie Mercury of Queen fame (one of my favorite voices in popular music).  Someone had spent hundreds and hundreds of hours and thousands of dollars glitzing up a 'rock 'n roll' car in tribute.

The second vehicle was a van covered with eyeballs.  Not nearly as fascinating as the rock ' roll car and, at some level, a little disturbing, but also very unusual.

A photo of these vehicles with a hint of Pearl Street in the background was our One Clue Mystery this past weekend.  Congratulations to George G for again solving where we're at this time around.
