They call me Smudge. I live in Estes Park, Colorado with my beautiful wife Jamie, our daughters Elaina and Daphne, and our pup Clover. I grew up in Texas and still consider it home, but love getting out and exploring Rocky Mountain National Park and the mountains of Colorado. My true outdoor love is trail running, but really just enjoy being outside in the hills. This blog is mainly a way for family and friends back home to keep up with what’s going on in my life, but I hope anyone who comes across it will enjoy!
