Welcome!

I’m Laura. I’m a beginner, just like you.

When you live in Colorado, where everyone seems to be born with hiking boots on their feet, it’s intimidating to ask for help. And when I was starting out just a few years ago, I couldn’t find a single beginner’s guide that was actually written by someone who was currently a beginner.

So I started this blog. 

I get a little teary when I think about skiing a blue run, have a strong preference for car camping, and consider running at 10-minute mile a very fast pace. But that doesn’t mean I don’t try new things.

Consider Outdoor Beginner your resource for all things outdoorsy.
