Tracey Thomsen enjoys being outside. A lot. As an Army Brat, she grew up from one side of the world to the other, causing a simple question like “Where are you from?” to make her brain hurt. She squarely rooted in Colorado Springs now, but she absorbed that gypsy upbringing right into her heart and soul. She made it her business to explore every square inch of the Pike National Forest by any means available, be it trail running, climbing, skiing, biking, scrambling…The rest of her time is spent slowly sipping Sumatras while drooling and plotting over maps.
