I live here in this place I call paradise. I'm not a corporation, or a business owner. I am a creative observer, an outdoor enthusiast, a lover of animals and nature, who wanted to start writing about, and sharing some things I love and see where they would take me. 

I have worked behind the scenes of the tourism industry in a variety of interesting jobs over the years and I've had a pretty unique perspective on things.  I also grew up in a world where playing in woods are some of my happiest childhood memories.

I am the creator, designer, photographer, author and publisher of this site.  While I do use some stock photographs, many of the shots on the site are original and were taken by me.


If you love the mountains like I do, I invite you to come on the journey with me.  This site is always evolving, improving, growing and changing. I want to provide and share helpful information for travelers and those who appreciate the outdoors and nature.


You can be sure that any attraction, place, product or service I recommend is because I have either experienced it myself and loved it, or know others who have, or carefully researched it and am very familiar with it.  If I believe something is not worthwhile or a waste of time and money, I will either tell you or it simply won't be on the site.

*Starlight *

The smallest spark of light that shines from the big, dark sky to show you the way and give you hope when you need it most.  Or for just standing and staring up in wonder and amazement on a warm summer night, feeling completely happy and at peace.
