The Colorado Trail. This is it. This is where our boots hit the ground and we make our mark in the fight for improved mental health for all. I chose to include our HIKE for Mental Health to help stamp out the stigma of mental illness and conserve wilderness trails. Colorado stole my heart on our brief visits there and after a relapse from my illness, I couldn’t pass on an opportunity to look last year between the eyes and say, “I’ll see ya when I see ya” especially as we commit to the Colorado Trail.
My sidekick, Booker and I have hiked or walked off over 1700 miles since my recovery last Fall so we’re geared up and ready—with him leading the way I’m sure.
Tell me, would you consider making a donation, leaving a message, or sharing this page? Whatever you prefer would be greatly appreciated.
