I am an expert when it comes to navigating the mountains. I have hiked for many years in various locations throughout the world. Some of the most extreme trails have been on were in Switzerland, Greece, France, and Colorado. I want to share with others the serene sport that has been a part of my life by tailoring each experience to each hikers abilities. I have hiked over 50 trails thoughout Colorado, all of which range in difficulty. It is my duty to ensure each person is comfortable during the entire trip while exploring what colorful Colorado has to offer.
