As you all know, nothing really happens in life unless it’s blogged, tweeted, facebooked or instagramed, so to make it official (and to keep myself from wussing out) I’m officially announcing that I will be hiking up to the tippety top of my very first 14er this summer!
The mountain? Mt. Bierstadt.
Why? Because I’m a Coloradan and that (apparently) is what we do. We “bag” 14ers, which are mountains with peak elevations of 14,000 or more. Mt. Bierstadt, at 14,060, is considered one of the easiest in Colorado and is one of the three or four that are recommended to first timers.
We’re planning to make the trek early on Friday, July 11 and I’m very excited!
And now the real question is… which Denver-area readers want to come with me? 🙂
