"Somewhere, something incredible is waiting to be known." -Carl Sagan
Trail running, hiking, backpacking, alpine/nordic skiing, fly fishing, kayaking, and exploring quaint authentic towns.
I like to experience a place. I typically scout out the locals' coffeehouse or cafe and use that as a jumping off point. Striking up a conversation with a local can provide leads on authentic regional experiences that you will never forget.
