I was born in Grand Junction, Colorado and lived in Aurora (a suburb of Denver)until I was in 5th grade. I've only been back a couple of times since then and, frankly, I've forgotten how incredibly beautiful this place is. We are at a private ranch near Estes Park. There's a one-acre pond stocked with trout plus kayaks, mountain bikes, a massive jacuzzi overlooking the pond, an outdoor fire pit and a bunch of other stuff. Eventually, we'll have to be disciplined enough to actually talk about young teen ministry!
