Shelby loves the smell of a fresh cup of coffee, an afternoon spent reading The Economist and any food with pumpkin in it. She loves the outdoors and has backpacked in a variety of places from the Adirondacks to Patagonia to the Grand Canyon. Her favorite place to hike, however, is in the Brooks Range in northern Alaska, where she spent two summers living. While Shelby spent her childhood years visiting Durango, CO every year, she has not visited Colorado in a while and is excited to experience winter on the ranch.
