For me, it began with my Father’s fascination with the big majestic mountains like Everest, K2, and Denali.
My Dad, who was in his 40’s at the time, decided that he would summit the tallest mountains in Colorado, which are know as the Colorado 14ers (14,000 (+) foot mountains) as a tribute, and perhaps as practice, to/for the big guys in the Himalayas.
I gotta thank him for giving me the love of thin air and wicked beautiful views.
Progress 5/54(ish): Democrat – Sherman (x2) – Uncompahgre – Shavano – Mt. Princeton
*My Dad has summited over 40 of Colorado's approximate 54 14ers!
To be continued…A lifelong adventure!
