A Brother Outdoors is about myself, as an African American who loves and enjoys the outdoors. But this blog really is not just about myself and my adventures. One of my hopes is to inspire others, especially other African Americans out there to learn to step outside of their boundaries and comfort zones and embrace and enjoy nature. Whether it be in your neighborhood park, back yard, or any of your state or national parks. Learn to take a step back from the daily grind of life and allow nature and the great outdoors provide you with an escape. An escape that God has provided to each and every one of us, man woman, child, Black, White, Asian, etc. And maybe at the same time we can all learn what more we can do to keep our planet beautiful and green for many generations to come.
A little more about myself. I’m originally from the great state of North Carolina, but now I call Colorado my home and have now since 2002. I’ve been a hiker ever since my moving here. In fact, my very first real adventure in the outdoors was a snowshoeing trip. I enjoy snowshoeing, never thought I would at first, but I like to keep an open mind. I am a skier as well. Something else I have learned how to do since moving here. I love to ski, probably more than I love to hike, but surely not by much.
I am not sure why this idea hasnt come to me before about doing a blog like this, but it did this past Sunday(7/24) while I was on a hike. So forgive me as I kinda go through this process on the fly so to speak. I will post plenty of pics of my hikes, etc and give you my opinions on things and hopefully we can learn from each other as time goes along. I am not an expert, I just know what works best for myself and I try to learn from other hikers and lovers of the outdoors and their experiences as well. I hope this gives you a little bit of insight on myself, A Brother Outdoors.
