Going (up) Green

Green Mountain, that is. I like to think that I’m a fairly avid hiker. After living a summer within Teton National Park, spending two years in beautiful Steamboat Springs, Colo.–an adventure Mecca–working for three months a mile from Rocky Mountain National Park, and now residing in Boulder–another sportsman (or woman)’s paradise, I feel that I’ve earned that claim.

But I’m slightly embarrassed to admit that I haven’t done much exploring of the trails near Boulder. I give myself a bit of leniency… I mean, I’ve lived here for less than a year, and most of that was during the winter… excuses? Perhaps.

All that to say that this was my first trip up Green Mountain. It’s gorgeous.

And I’m blessed to say that I got to do it for my job. Not only is Educate! pursuing great work in Uganda with educational reform and social entrepreneurship, the people who work there also appreciate the importance of the outdoors. Today was a test run for the Hike for Uganda that will be happening on August 28… an awareness raiser/fundraiser. It’s going to be awesome.
