Just before heading down from our meager 3 mile hike on the Colorado Trail to Harvard Lakes, we met another 500 miler on his 16th day on the trail. Eugene, an Air Force Colonel who, after retiring from the service, became a High School Science Teacher. He is retired again but no less active.
Eugene’s trek, from Denver to Durango, is just about 500 miles. We had the pleasure of hiking and talking with him for a while. We enjoyed a lively and enlightening conversation. Like many of the other fit Boomers we met on our CO journey, Eugene has been active almost as long as he can remember. But, don’t be discouraged, it is never too late and we will show you many examples of Boomers who have gotten better with age.
Meanwhile enjoy our short interview, on the trail with Eugene.
