Colorado Hiking Blog. Life Outside.
A climber uses the help of a belayer (someone who stays on the ground and manages the rope) to stay safe. The belayer is a climber’s life line. They build a trust together. Grow together. And learn together. Some people call it a “belaystionship.” Believe me, belaytionships are beautiful things.
You are here because you love the outdoors. I get that, my obsession with fresh air, spanning vistas, and a good challenge keeps me putting my heavy pack on, day in and day out.
But I didn’t get to the remote corners of the wilderness by chance. I built my skill set and learned lots of things the hard way.
My passion is to pass that knowledge on to you. I’m not kidding. I quit my career to spread the good word of the outdoors. That’s right. I want to give you what you need to get outdoors often and excel at doing so.
So I created this AWESOME blog. But I always strive for more, so that wasn’t good enough for me. I want to bring you more because let’s face it, no one ever truly master’s Mother Nature. Thus, my newsletter was born.
