Cat 4 Road, Cat 4 MTB – Club
Jeanie likes to be outside. She has climbed all of the Colorado 14ers and also climbed Mt. Rainer. She used to be a leader for the Colorado Mountain Club. She has done two hut to hut mountain bike trips; one from Durango to Moab and one from Telluride to Moab. She has gone down the Grand Canyon in a river raft about 10 years ago and will again in 2017. She likes to telemark ski in the winter, in the backcountry. She believes that staying active is the key to a long life full of happiness and adventure. She hopes to ride her bike in Europe and across Canada, some day. She also has aspirations to do the Colorado Trail.
