In the year 2000 I turned 40 and decided I needed a little adventure in my life. Having gone school in Colorado for a couple years in the 80’s, I knew that they had a lot of 14,000 ft mountains out there so that seemed like the logical place to start. I set a goal to climb one per year until I turned 50.

As I write this in the fall of 2011, I have conquered 45 peaks in the State of Colorado over 14,000 ft. I obviously caught the mountain climbing bug! Turns out there are 57 peaks in total, so I have 12 remaining. My goal is to knock them out by no later than 2013.

I will post pictures from my latest adventure as they occur and talk about the experience as I progress.
