getting in touch with my inner colorado girl

Colorado 14ers

Like any good Colorado girl, I want to climb all 54 of Colorado’s peaks. During the summer of 2012, I decided I wanted to do them all by age 30, which gives me until 2017 to complete my goal. Let’s do this.

Summer 2013 Edit: My goals have kind of changed, due to my discovery of sub-14ers. I still want to do all the 14ers someday, but I have no official timeline. I love hiking peaks because it gets me eye level with the clouds and hanging out with the pikas. I care more about the experience of hiking than the label of 14er. Don’t get me wrong though, I hiked a 14er last weekend. I still love those darn things!
