Home and away.
Colorado was my home for my entire undergraduate degree at the University of Colorado at Boulder. I love this state, and there have been too many adventures here to document.
It's changed a lot in the past decade, not for the better, and it seems unlikely I'll ever move back to this state. It's now densely and over-populated, and trailheads are often crowded, campsites fill up, and traffic, particularly on busy roads in the mountains, is horrific. It's fallen victim to how accessible its wilderness areas are.
Regardless, I still return multiple times each year to different parts, and likely will for my entire life.
