Colorado Adventure Photographer Kimberly Crist

So you want to learn a little bit more about me? Well, I’m just a lady who likes to explore.

I’m an avid adventurist, passionate about storytelling and creativity, and a supportive partner and friend. When I’m not out on photoshoots, you can find me on the trail or in a tent. I camp every weekend, clocking in a solid 40+ nights a year sleeping outside. I enjoy hiking, but I enjoy hiking for the sole purpose of getting somewhere awesome (usually alpine lakes). Living in Grand Junction, Colorado, there is so much to do within a days drive that I also enjoy road trips to see all that the world has to offer! When I’m in town, I love a good trip to the thrift store or coffee shop, or a day spent fussing over my 50+ plants.

I love being creative in all aspects of life too! Outside of photography, I also macrame, weave, and sew. I love a good cup of chai or kombucha, tacos and pizza (every Sunday!).

All in all, I make it a point in my life to slow down and create space for adventure. Life is about dusty backroads and 4am drives up mountain passes. It is dimly lit coffee shops in small mountain towns, and small talk with strangers. It is anxiety and nerves and excitement and aventure. It is about creating a narrative of a life that you are excited to live.

You can read more about me and why I do what I do in my interview with Lynnsey of The Fox Travels, or my interview with VoyageDenver.
