Becky Pahl

Becky’s love for the mountains brought her to Colorado, from Kansas, in 1998. First order of business, upon arrival, was to secure a ski pass—never mind getting a job. A girl has her priorities. Since then she has spent as much time as possible exploring the Rocky Mountains and never tiring of the wonders they hold. You can often find Becky and her best friend, Bear, exploring Colorado on one of its many beautiful hiking trails. While she feels she has truly found her home in Colorado, Becky also has a passion for seeing the world. She has spent time hiking along Italy’s Mediterranean coast in the Cinque Terre and trekking through the Himalayas in the magical kingdom of Bhutan. Becky traveled to the Galapagos Islands recently with Nat Hab—truly the trip of a lifetime—and she is looking forward to many more great adventures to come. Fun fact: Becky was a broadcast journalist in another life. Just after graduation from the University of Kansas, she worked in television as a reporter and anchor.
