"As an outdoor enthusiast, Indian Peaks Wilderness is one of my favorite places to get out and enjoy the natural world! However, I also recognize my responsibility to give back and be a steward to the mountains that have given me so much. I became a member of IPWA so that I could help ensure this wonderful Wilderness area can be enjoyed by others for years to come."
