Last year I climbed my first mountain/first 14er as they call them here in Colorado (mountains over 14,000 feet). It was Pikes Peak and it was one of my major life goals that I thought I would never achieve. I loved it. Later that summer/early fall I climbed another with a friend. Now I am hooked and determined to work to climb all of the 14ers in Colorado in my lifetime. I am not sure how many I will be able to do each year with schedule and weather, but I am excited about it. I feel relaxed and not incredibly pressured. It is a good goal, but I don’t feel the urgency to be a driven as I might usually be.


At this point though, I am really ready to climb one and wish I could right now. I have a hankering as one might say and I really want to climb a mountain!


Hopefully soon…
