Being a non-skier in Colorado can be perplexing to people. People often question why I moved to Colorado if I don’t ski. Of course, that’s ludicrous – there are so many things to do in the Colorado Rockies besides skiing! It’s inevitable that as a non-skier in Colorado, you’ll likely have skiing friends, however you don’t have to avoid them all winter – instead you can join them to go play in the mountains.

Capitol to Capitol Quest – Walking and Cycling to the United States Capitols

In 1984 my father began a quest, albeit unconventional. He was 47 and his mission was to visit the capitols of the lower 48 states on foot, starting in Illinois, where we lived, following a counter-clockwise roadmap of his own making.
