As a little guy in Kansas, my family would vacation in Colorado every summer. I dreamed that someday I would live in the mountains. In 1985, my wife, Hermine, and I decided it was time to chase the dream. We sold everything, loaded a U-Haul with what was left and headed west to the Rockies. In 2003 we built our log home on the side of a mountain across the valley from Pike Peak
It is such a gift to see Pikes Peak every morning. How blessed I feel that I work at what I love, live with the girl of my dreams, and see the Rocky Mountains every day.
A great way to start the day. This is the same place where I played as a boy on vacation. So, now when I see kids racing their home made boats down the stream, I am taken back to the time when my brothers and I did the same; Mom and Dad grilling fresh caught trout on the patio and everything in life felt perfect.
