Colorado Heritage Journey

BY JORDAN WILLIAMS
@ VOL 6 ON NOV 08, 2018

In the summer of 2018, Jordan was able to hike over 400 miles of the Colorado Trail from Denver to Durango with his wife and our dog, Aska. Besides just the majesty of the mountains and wilderness, Jordan also got to experience Colorado's special history and heritage as we made stops in several towns including Twin Lakes, Salida, and Silverton. Additionally, the connections Jordan made provided my adventure with a unique perspective that I want to share with others through our initiative entitled "Colorado Heritage Journey" (https://coheritagejourney.com/)

Climbing and Beer

BY JOEL IRBY
@ VOL 4 ON AUG 08, 2019

During the 14 years that Joel Irby lived in Colorado, he spent hundreds of days climbing in the mountains. Every once in a while he would come across one of those great endless views, composed of layer upon layer of mountains, which eventually dissolved into the clouds on the horizon. These stone clouds gave him his company's name and continue to inspire its sense of adventure and quest for new beer experiences.
