Lee was born and raised in Minnesota. After graduating from Minnesota State University at Mankato, he moved to Iowa where he opened an auto parts store. After several years, the travel bug brought him to Colorado where he started working for a motorcoach company and began doing tours. With a passion for travel and seeking new spaces, Lee has traveled throughout the country and likes the Western states the best. He knows the well known spots and sites, as well as the back roads and hidden gems most people bypass.
