My name is Larry. December of 2015, my family and I relocated to Aurora, Colorado from Green Bay, Wisconsin. What a great place Colorado is! This summer, 2017, my wife encouraged me to start a blog about our year-round, outdoor adventures. By “our” I am referring to myself, my wife (Stella), & Aspen (our 12.5 – year young Golden Retriever). And, I must also include Goldie, our other golden beauty whom is still very much alive and present with us in loving spirit.

Stella, Aspen and I are passionate about being in the mountains where you will typically find us hiking, mountain biking, kayaking, snowshoeing, paddle boarding, cross country skiing and whatever else comes to mind.Β Someday, we hope to make Base Camp @ Grand Lake our permanent home. But for now, it is our beloved weekend retreat.Β So, join us on our adventures, and an occasional misadventure, as we discover the mountains, rivers and lakes in and around Colorado and the mountainous west.
