Farewell Ellipsis, Hello TreeLines, the New Website for Life’s Adventures

I’m so excited to finally introduce you to TreeLines, my new website for sharing life’s adventures in the outdoors and between the lines. If you hung out with me on Ellipsis: Backcountry and Books, you can still find all of those adventures here, on TreeLines, in each of the website’s main categories: life, story, adventure, in the sidebar.

Out with the Old Blog, in with the New Website

While I’m stoked to move forward with a new design and name, I’m so grateful for how much I’ve learned from Ellipsis in the last year. Creating a new website is chaotic and I definitely underestimated just how much time it would take, but so much has changed, both online and off, and it feels so good! I’ve left Houston and moved back to Colorado, to Denver, the Mile High City, dropped out of an incredible PhD program (yeah, you heard that right), and have started new career ventures, and set new goals. So I guess TreeLines has come at just the right time to capture all the new places and experiences to explore in Colorado and beyond.

I use the word “adventure” a lot, but I don’t think adventure has to be far away, expensive, epic, dangerous, or badass–adventure is in the stuff of the every day. Maybe it is summiting above the treeline, but maybe it’s in the lines of your favorite book.

Soon, TreeLines will feature additional updates to the site, like a gallery to showcase life’s stories through photography. For now, I hope you’ll explore the new website, revisit your favorite Ellipsis adventures like hiking Mt. Bierstadt, the Colorado 14er, or my favorite “How to Poop on a River Rafting Trip.”

I’d love to hear what you think about the new website! Got a comment on the design, the navigation, anything, and I’m all ears. Just go ahead and leave a comment on this post, or drop me a line via the “Get in Touch” button.

Thanks for sticking around guys, and I’ll see ya soon!

    Hi Mandi,

    You probably don’t remember me but I am your mom’s uncle – Rick’s brother. I haven’t been back to the USA in quite a while except a couple of short runs to the west coast to renew working visas.

    Anyway, I really like your web site. Have you considered traveling to Asia or Europe for more adventures? I know there is more than enough to see and do in the U.S. to keep a person busy for a life time but expanding horizons is always a good thing.

    After over 20 years as an expat in Thailand and China I have made friends and contacts all over the world. Expats tend to have similar interests and often hang out in the same places. When we move on to our next adventure we generally stay in touch and there is almost always an open invitation to visit. That welcome is extended to friends and family members. So, if you ever plan a trip to Europe, Australia, SE Asia or anywhere else let me know.

    In my visits I have found that many times, in addition to being taken to the normal tourist places that everyone visits, local friends often know those out of the way ‘secret’ places that the general tourist never sees because they just don’t know about them.

    Good luck with your new goals!
