Welcome to Colorado Guy! Enjoy my photo galleries. Read a stupid article about my life. Or watch a video. It's all about fun in here ... and maybe inspiration now and then.

About Me - I'm a licensed professional counselor by day, and a photographer, mountain climber, road cyclist, adventurer and Colorado poster child the rest of the time. I've biked across America twice, the latest in 2011, and have been promoting my book at many libraries that details my first ride in 2008. I call Buena Vista home, but I've also lived in Colorado Springs, Manitou Springs, Fruita, Trinidad and even Albuquerque, New Mexico. I try to get around the state as much as possible. :)

Keep in touch! Introduce yourself on the Friendship Board. Follow the insanity on Twitter. Let's connect on Facebook. I'm a big fan of Pinterest. And I've uploaded 2300+ videos on my YouTube channel.
