Mt. Bierstadt: Looking Up

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? πŸ™‚

    Awesome! Good for you! I look forward to hearing all about it, and of course, seeing all of the gorgeous pictures.

    I might totally take you up on your Bierstadt offer. I did it last summer and have since gotten addicted to climbing 14ers. Before you know it, you’ll be doing Grays and Torreys.. IN THE SAME DAY. πŸ˜‰

      That’s my plan!!! I bet I could even do them in August… πŸ™‚ And you should totally come!

    If I thought I could hang, I would totally come along. My goal this summer is to go whitewater rafting for the first time (another quintessential Coloradan thing to do). I’m sure you’ll have a great time and I can’t wait to see pictures!

    I am so excited for you! I can’t wait to hear about it and see the amazing pictures.
    I will be joining you in spirit, but only a bit above 9,000 ft. I will be hiking another mountain that day, in SoCal.
