Where on the Western Slope do you live? how long have you been there? Where did you come here from? How did you learn about the WSA group and why did you join? Do you plan to be an "Active" member or is WSA just one more web registration for you?

I came to Grand Junction, CO from Boston four years ago, trading my lobsters for trout. I moved from Grand Junction to Montrose in spring of 2012. Spent just over two years in Montrose and now I'm back in Junction again!

How and about what time in life did you get started with outdoor recreation? What are a few of your favorite outdoor activities?

I really didn't get into "The Great Outdoors", as I am now, until I moved to beautiful Colorado. I enjoy scenic drives, hiking, Fourteeners, camping, backpacking, kayaking, snowshoeing, XC skiing, cruising on my bike, and other social gatherings, and I am looking forward to many more new and exciting activities!

What is the most challenging hike, bike, backpack, 14er, canyoneering, ski/snowshoe, river trip or other outing you've ever done? How or why was that; and, would you do that or something similar again?

I love hiking/climbing Fourteeners. Wetterhorn Peak and the SW Ridge route up Mt. Sneffels were (so far) the most challenging to me, solid Class 3 peaks.

Where is the most scenic place you have ever slept in a tent, walked or biked on a trail or travelled by paddle or oar down a river?

Ice Lakes Basin in mid-to-late July, hands down! And climbing to the top of the 13er Golden Horn above Ice Lake was SPECTACULAR.

After you've been on a few events with us, what kind of event might you be willing to to initiate and share with fellow WSA adventurers? Organize a hike? road or mtn bike ride? an evening on the river? a ski or snowshoe on Grand Mesa? Or... ?

I've been on a few events now, LOL. I am a very outgoing person and I really enjoy bringing all types of people together to experience beautiful places, especially in the mountains. Winter, spring, summer, and fall. And I don't mind sipping and tasting good things at the fabulous potlucks! Come on out and join me at any of my events!


My name is Suzy. I'm an enthusiastic adventurer with a long "bucket list"!
