After moving around frequently as an Army brat, I’m pleased to have found a place to call home in Colorado. I’ve lived here for 34 years now, and that time has instilled in me a deep appreciation for our connection to nature, outdoor recreation opportunities, and Coloradans’ desire and commitment to maintain these assets for future generations.
