A long way from home

We were only two weeks away from spring break and I was already getting ready to be home for a week in my hometown of Glenwood Springs. Every year since I had arrived at Fort Lewis, the tradition was for me to return home for all of the breaks; I really treasured that time with my family since I was now living away from them for eight months. Unlike many of my other friends, I had never considered any other alternative for spring break but that changed last year in March of 2013 when my roommate, Hana, offered an interesting proposition.

An adventurous summer in Durango

During my Junior and Senior years of high school, as I started looking for colleges, I wanted to find a school where I would never be bored and could always find something exciting to do.  Durango is probably the most exciting and challenging place to explore that I have come across.  Year-round, there are all sorts of different adventures to embark on.  I’ll try to explain at least some of what I have come to love doing in Durango.
