My name is Larry. My family & I moved to Aurora, CO December of 2015. What a great place this is! This summer (2017), I made the decision to start a blog about our numerous, 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 & present with us in loving spirit.

Stella, Aspen & 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, & an occasional misadventure, as we discover the mountains, rivers and lakes in and around Colorado, along with the other mountainous western states.
