In 2006, I had such mixed emotions about Boulder, Utah. It was a place that represented sadness and loss.
At that time, I could never imagine the connection I now feel with the town, but time has a way of blowing the smoke from your eyes so you can clearly see the complete picture. What happened to Dave was unimaginable, but the people of Boulder didn’t hesitate to reach out and help during that terrible time.
Now when I think of Boulder, I think of all of the children who have enjoyed the art center at the festival, which is held the second week of July each year. I hope a few might pass the sign and say, “Who’s Dave Buschow?” and might learn that he was a young man who died doing what he loved, and how Boulder citizens did all they could to help. Dave’s family just want to continue thanking the town and hope they will remember her son.
The following pictures were taken during the last two festivals. I’m sure Dave would be pleased.
