Last Ride before Leaving Colorado (Buckhorn, Cpt. Jacks, Gold Camp)

Last Ride before Leaving Colorado

Buckhorn, Cpt. Jacks, Gold Camp, Stratton Open Space

One of my favorite local rides from Colorado Springs. Not wanting to bore everyone with an hour and a half of the slow 2,000-foot climb – I just pointed out some of the highlights on the way up. I started up In Stratton Open Space, heading up parts of Gold Camp Road to the Buckhorn Trail and down Captain Jack’s Trail including the Chutes, and back to Gold Camp and Stratton.

Over the past 35 years of my adult life, I have gained a very diverse portfolio of adventures from which I have been blessed to be a participant. This wealth of experience and knowledge has defined my character, my morals and values and my healthy respect for people and the great outdoors. It is a true definition of an Outdoorsman!

All Trails Lead to Riches!

All season long, I am outdoors testing new products and consider them for reviews, some I keep, many I don’t. For the ones I don’t keep, once reviewed and photographed, I give them away to followers of The Outdoor Life blog who have subscribed to my newsletter! Products are typically for Biking, Hiking, Backpacking, Kayaking, Camping, and other outdoor activities. Once I accumulate 3-4 items, I use an online random picker and select a name for each item, email you for your address and send it on its way. No strings attached!
