Dave and Debbie Family   arrow

We have a great crew…a bunch of adventurers. Some of them have sworn off backpacking after ranging way too many miles through the hinterlands of Colorado and the Sierra Nevadas with “old Pop”, but they have adventure in their hearts. Several have been to Copper Canyon. Actually daughter Anne’s photos are some of the best from Copper Canyon.

Our family including some inlaws relaxing in Durango- photo from about 100 years ago! I am proud of this bunch!

My good wife is the brains and encouragement behind this venture in Copper Canyon. From day one over 40 years ago, we have operated with the software that life is not worth living unless it is given away. She is a giver- Habitat, Jesus’ church, all kinds of needy people…and she loves Copper Canyon. Now Debbie is heading up our not for profit initiative called “Friends of Copper Canyon“. She also has this cool blog that ennunciates our lifestyle–Need Less, Give More.
