Long time educators and outdoor enthusiasts, my husband, Andy, and I love rafting, fishing, bicycling, hiking, gardening and cooking together. We've lived in Southern CO for many years and are here for all of the magnificence the Rocky Mountains offer. We have worked hard professionally and understand the need to find time to wind down - whether it is through the next adventures or relaxing in the hammock with a beverage.
