High Country

IMG_0182-600x800

If you had asked me nine years ago if my weekends would be filled with hiking trails, fly fishing, mountain biking, snow skiing or trail running, I probably would have laughed.

I loved the outdoors as a kid, but when we moved to Chicago after college, work became my life. Working downtown, followed by drinks at the pub left little time to experience Mother Nature. But all of that changed when we moved to Denver in 2007.

My love for the great outdoors came out of hibernation, and soon life in the Mile High City would become my second home.
