Stephen StarkS

My name is Stephen Starks and I love the outdoors, hiking in particular. I was born and raised in San Antonio Texas; between football and the oppressive heat, I never even considered other outdoor activities. Fast forward 15 years and I move to Greeley, CO (10/19) where I own & operate a meal prep company.


COVID-19 pandemic changed the way I was doing business and the way I was living life. While my cousin Tasha was visiting we took a drive through RMNP & to the Alluvial fan. That day we saw a herd of Bighorn sheep w/7 or so Rams, several herds of elk, and even a Moose. I was hooked. Since that day I've completed 9 14ers, I hike weekly (preferably multiple hikes a week) & my love of nature has multiplied exponentially. I document my adventures through photography, mostly on my Instagram (@Starksstrong) and  I'm planning to lead group hikes in the near future because BIPOC are definitely under represented in the outdoors and I want to do everything I can to change that.
