Trinity Ludwig loves to be outside. When not working part-time as a “lightweight” investment banker she can be found (mostly) in the Colorado Rockies hiking before sunrise, trail running in the dark after work, setting first ski tracks, or climbing with friends. She also canoes, rafts, ice climbs and occasionally ultra-lounges (preferably outside). Her largest adventure yet was an eleven-month hike with two girlfriends up the length of South America (completed August 2012). They were quickly dubbed the “Tres Chicas Locas” (three crazy girls) by locals learning of their Andean hiking endeavor. The trio awards the greatest success of their trip to the maintenance and deepening of their friendship. Throughout their adventure they collected general biodiversity data through photos and journaling for Pacific Biodiversity Institute (Seattle, WA). Now, Trinity sits on their board and leads exploratory expeditions to collect more data in remote South American wildlands.
Trinity grew up in Fargo, ND and is one of seven children. She found her love of the mountains through five youthful summers attending Cheley Colorado Camps (Estes Park, CO). She graduated from The Colorado College (Colorado Springs, CO) and now works part-time in the higher education and nonprofit group at an investment bank in Denver. She resides in Boulder, CO with her black and fuzzy adventure buddy, Pali.
