WHAT IS YOUR FAVORITE AND WHY?

MOUNTAIN TOWN?  

Crested Butte, duh.

COFFEE SHOP?  

Either the Comma Coffee House in Carson City, Nevada or the Kiva Koffee House in Escalante, Utah for the vibe, decor, food and of course the coffee.

BREWERY OR APRÈS HANGOUT?  

High Alpine Brewery, these are more my peeps!

PLACE TO GRAB GRUB?  

Anyplace with Sushi on the menu!

PLACE TO PITCH A TENT FOR THE WEEKEND?  

Under a full moon on a San Juan River trip. There is nothing like the lull of the river and the serenity of the canyon walls to make the magic.

TRAIL TO HIKE OR MOUNTAIN BIKE?  

Hike:  West Maroon Pass. One word, WILDFLOWERS. Bike: The downhills on Reno-Flag-Bear-Deadman's. It's epic backcountry mountain biking.

PLACE TO ESCAPE TO?  

BAJA!! Remote, non touristy, and FISH TACOS.

THING ABOUT CRESTED BUTTE?  

The Valley is full of interesting diverse people that surprise me every day!

ASPECT OF CHOPWOOD MERCANTILE?  

The people we get to meet in the shop are incredible and very supportive of us and our vision.
