In my younger years, I lived in Albuquerque, Santa Fe, Denver and Estes Park and LOVE being outdoors. The last twenty-five years I have become very passionate in fly fishing, backpacking, bass fishing, boating, camping and traveling. My advice to the younger generation is getting out of your comfort zone and learn new things in the great outdoors. The rewards are unimaginable.
