He enjoys all outdoor activities, including golf, yard work, gardening, camping and alpine skiing. He especially enjoys high altitude hiking and trekking and has climbed four “Fourteeners” in Colorado and, in 2017, completed a trek to Mount Everest Base Camp in Nepal. Dr. Weidenbener and his wife Lisa raised five children and currently enjoy farm-living as empty nesters.
