Theme song for Base Camp @ Grand Lake

We are Larry and Stella. In December of 2015 we relocated to Colorado from Green Bay, Wisconsin. The summer of 2016 had been our first time visiting Grand Lake, and after which, we never left. Grand Lake had become our permanent summer home. The following summer, 2017, we launched Base Camp @ Grand Lake to share with others about our year-round outdoor adventures. This website has been an exciting work-in-progress ever since, which now sees over 1,500 visitors per month.

We are outdoor adventure enthusiasts who are passionate about being in the mountains where we can be found hiking, biking, kayaking, stand up paddle boarding, snowshoeing, cross-country skiing, snowmobiling, and whatever else may come to mind. Please join us on our adventures as we explore the mountains, rivers, lakes and trails in and around Colorado and the mountainous western states. And, be sure to visit the “Gear Review” drop down tab to read our product reviews for the outdoor gear that we use.

Our beautiful golden girls whom were both taken by cancer. Goldie (left) was a regal beauty with a gentle, nurturing demeanor and an unparalleled degree of intuition (11/11/03 – 8/26/16). Aspen (right) was our sweet little girl with endless energy and an abundance of loving kisses for all (3/20/05 – 3/31/2019). Their spirits are ever-present, yet we are broken without them.
