About Me

Hello, my name is David Smith. Personally, I am avid outdoorsman. Where some people’s idea of a vacation is sitting on the beach drinking daiquiris; my idea of fun is exploring the backcountry on extended hiking trips or expedition style climbing trips. Traveling to far away exotic places, meeting new people, discovering new cultures and seeing new and exciting wildlife is my passion.

Below is a quick list of some of my personal accomplishments and things I am proud of:

Climbed Cotopaxi 19,340’ Tallest active volcano in the world.

Climbed 21 14,000’ peaks in Colorado

Logged more than 3000 miles of trails on 4 continents
