Runner, Yogi, Photographer

I live in Colorado, a state abundant in outdoor activities; a place people all over the world come to for experiences in the the great outdoors.  On a recent walk around the lake near my house in the suburbs, I came to a realization about myself and my current lifestyle.

“The further I am from nature, the less I know and feel like myself.”

This is what prompted me to begin writing this blog and sharing my photographs in 2010.  The purpose is to learn about myself and others who feel a connection to the outdoors and discover what that means to each of us.  I hope you enjoy what I have to share and are willing to share your experiences with me!
