This site was created to collect and share some of the beautiful places in Colorado we have had the privilege to visit. When I was younger, the only thing I took away from the mountains were memories, which have faded with time. This time around we are going to save some of the gems.
“Mountaineering, in its broader sense, promotes the health and strength of the body, it teaches self-reliance, determination, presence of mind, necessity for individual thought and action, pride of accomplishment, fearlessness, endurance, helpful cooperation, loyalty, patriotism, the love of an unselfish freedom, and many other qualities that make for a sturdy manhood and womanhood.”
– Roger Toll, superintendent of Rocky Mountain National Park from 1921 to 1929, and charter member of the Colorado Mountain Club.
