Hi, my name is Connie, an avid outdoor enthusiast. I’ve had the privilege of living in the mountains of Colorado for most of my life and am excited to share with you all the outdoor gems I come across wandering the state hiking trail by hiking trail. Hoping to inspire you, engage you, and most definitely help send you on your way to becoming a Colorado outdoor addict! My goal is to empower you with the tools and any advice you need to responsibly discover our mountain trails.

New to hiking, new to Colorado, or an avid hiker looking for your next hike, there is a trail out there and I can’t wait to share it all with you!
