Barr Camp is an off-the-grid mountain camp/refuge located on the side of Pikes Peak. With the camp sitting at 10,200 feet (3,109 meters) and approximately six miles up the Barr Trail, I like to think that I'm moving up in the world! While working at Barr Camp Ashley and I will be responsible for taking care of all of the guests who book a stay at the camp. This means we will be cooking meals for them (pancakes for breakfast and pasta with garlic bread for dinner), maintaining the camp, hauling in re-supplies, responding to rescues, and many other things. While the work will be plentiful and tough, I am very much looking forward to it. Plus, I am pumped to have miles and miles of high altitude trails right out the door!
Ashley and I will be taking over in the next few months. Please feel free to venture up our six mile "driveway" and say hi. I'm really looking forward to getting to know the community of people that frequent Barr Camp / Trail and exploring the mountain. I've done a lot of floating around in the past, but I'm happy to have the opportunity to focus on getting to know one place really well. In the words of Ricky Gates "...I think that a single mountain range is enough exploration for an entire lifetme".
