Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
I've had a life-long love affair with Colorado, we're still going
strong at 30. I gravitate towards music that fits my mood. I enjoy
being enraptured by a great novel. But more than anything, I'm
always completely bewildered by nature because it never stops.
There is nothing quite like the Wilderness, I think Carl Sandburg
captured its essence in his poem of the same title.
I like to spend my time with my family & friends. Hiking is my
go-to. I also enjoy a good mountain bike ride, rock climbing, and
definitely anything involving a river and paddling. Snowshoeing is
fun, and I snowboard badly as a result of little practice. But one
can always improve right?
Aside from the litany of outdoor pursuits, I'm also a nomad at
heart, travel is probably what I enjoy most. Whether I'm exploring
a new part of Colorado or a new country, the thrill and excitement
is always there, palpable.
