Colder weather and a little bit of snow doesn’t stop Jennifer from an afternoon of hiking. Sugarloaf Mountain is one of Jennifer’s personal favorite local hikes. “It’s super close to Boulder, where I live, and offers amazing views of the Rockies. I do this hike regularly, ” she said. The views of Sugarloaf stretch over the vast Plains to the east, the Boulder Group to the southeast, the Indian Peaks to the west, and Longs Peak and Rocky Mountain National Park to the north and northwest.

Born in Florida, Jennifer moved here to study at CSU in Fort Collins, then moved to Boulder less than a year ago simply because she loves the town. She spends most of her time outside and loves to explore the mountains. When she isn’t hiking, you can find her curled up in her apartment with a good book or cooking.

Fun fact about Jennifer? She is trying to conquer all of Colorado’s 14ers. She has already climbed 16 in the past 4 years and hopes to complete 5 more this upcoming summer, including Long’s and Snowmass.

Good luck, Jennifer and thanks for sharing a little about yourself!
