I grew up in Kansas in a very small farming town where life was very slow and lots of fun. That's where I learned to appreciate nature and what it provided to us. I love Colorado and the beautiful hiking that is available, but my real love is the Pacific Northwest. Particularly the San Juan Islands off the coast of Washington. I LOVE sea kayaking around the islands. The Orca whales fascinate me and I hope someday to expand my knowledge of their lives and the problems we humans are creating for them, in order to work with the agencies that are attempting to protect their environment.
