Mark and I have lived in the Pagosa Springs area since 1992. We are involved in avalanche work in the winter. I teach backcountry avalanche safety courses in the winter and Mark is an avalanche forecaster. We are adventurers who love to hike, backpack, road cycle, mountain bike, trail run, run rivers, and backcountry ski. We love to travel and know a lot about the Southwest and Western US. We are avid readers and love good food.
