My name is Paul Bauer and I love the outdoors. I grew up in the foothills of Colorado and I lived on a Mountain called High Peak in the community of Hilldale Pines. When I was a kid, the entire mountain was my playground. My buddies and I hiked all over the place up there, as well as climbed rock faces, trees and explored caves.

After 14 years of living in California after serving in the U.S. Navy I'm back in Colorado and I'm trying to show my kids the wonders of the outdoors. At the same time, I thought I could post some pictures or some advice of things I've learned along the way.

Some things I'm really into are hiking, camping, geocaching and the art of survival. I've also been hunting a few times, but not since I was a teenager. Perhaps it's time to go again?

Anyway, welcome to my new blog! I plan to post weekly to begin with (Every Monday) and if I find more time I'll post more. Be sure to subscribe, and keep checking back!
