I live in the Boulder, CO area where I enjoy hiking on our many Open Space trails. I live with my husband of 33 years in a too empty nest, since our daughters have flown the coop. One is studying fashion design and living the good life in Southern California and the other is attending Medical school in Philadelphia. I work PRN as an Ultrasound Tech which leaves me plenty of time to pursue my passions of traveling and enjoying nature - especially wildlife sightings. I will be going NOBO on the Appalachian Trail in 2020. (Make that 2021!) I hope to ‘celebrate’ my SIXTY FIRST birthday somewhere along the trail in late June. See you in the woods!
