Pat is interested in Colorado history and the fur trade, or mountain man era.

He began to see the influence of trails taking shape and found Pike’s influence.

As a news reporter and photographer, marketer, writer and student of history, he began practicing the art of living history by becoming not only a re-enactor but a leader in the The American Mountain Men organization.

His interest continued as he learned about Pike aspects of Colorado’s Pioneer Trails.
