Favorite Outdoor Adventure Around the Front Range? My wife, Kathe, and I appreciate the area a bit further south of the metro area, including Ridgeway, Taos, and Santa Fe.
What Brought You to Ars Nova? Kathe and I got involved almost at the inception of Ars Nova through our dear friends Tom Morgan, Nicky Kroge, Amy French, and Jack Rook. We have stayed close with them and continue to enjoy travel experiences and musical appreciation.
