I’m Shari. I do most of the writing around here, but it takes a family to run this website. Let me tell you a bit about us.
Jake and I have been married for twelve years (thirteen in September!), and we have two kids. We’re both western Colorado natives, and we grew up in our nearby mountains. Jake camped, and my family had a cabin at Vega Reservoir.
We love the outdoors, and we’ve pretty much done it all: camped, hiked, 4-wheeled, fished, biked, snowmobiled, boated, and bird watched. Right now we’re in the process of remodeling the pickup camper we purchased last summer, but before that, we were tentin’ it.
By day, Jake’s a CDL driver, and I write New Adult Fantasy and Contemporary fiction. (If you’re interested, you can check out my novels on my website at Shariltapscott.com.) We’re also a homeschooling family, and we love to travel our state.
Our goal is pretty simple: check out every single Colorado campground and hike everywhere we can. It’s a big task, let me tell you. A lot of campgrounds aren’t listed on maps. We want to find them all.
Suggestions are always appreciated. Have a favorite camping spot or hiking trail? Know a great area for dispersed camping? What about the best campfire meal? Send us an email or tag me on Instagram or Twitter! We’ll check it out, and we might even feature it on the blog!
