Aubrey and I created MakingFreshTracks.com to keep our friends and family updated from afar but it’s grown into a place for us to document our lives, share our stories and interests with all interested like minded people.

Were avid snowboarders, backpackers, paddlers, photographers, dog lovers, foodies….we love the mountains, rivers, lakes and adventures of all shapes and sizes.

We spent the last four consecutive winters living in Salt Lake City Utah where we played, lived and work at the foot of the Wasatch mountain range at the far western edge of the American Rockies. I did my IT gig in a local company office with Aubrey’s working in the local food bar restaurant scene. We lived in Cottonwood Heights just south of downtown Salt Lake and only a few minutes from some of the best snowboarding in the western hemisphere…Big and Little Cotton Wood Canyons.

For the past 6 years our house(now sold) was in far west central Wisconsin, the beautiful St.Croix river valley right across the border from Minnesota and the Twin Cities metro area. Each spring as the western ski resort lifts stop spinning and neighborhood snow banks receded we packed the car and headed east to our house and friends in Wisconsin.

We loved our home, friends, family and miss the abundant lakes and rivers of the upper midwest but our hearts most content when near the mountains.

This is where the new chapter in our lives begins
