About Keith Ganger
I am a Colorado native born and raised in Colorado Springs. Growing up we used to spend a lot of the summer in a cabin in the Estes Park area. This instilled in me a strong love of the outdoors. In the last couple of years I have been focused on getting back in shape which has brought me back to lots of time outside.
Besides hiking I love Snowboarding, Fishing, Movies, Target Shooting, and more recently Flying.
