Steps to Summit Your First 14er

May 9th, 2018

When you look out over the mountain peaks that make Colorado one of the most beautiful places to live in the country, you may see certain summits that tower over the others, snowcapped even late into the summer. Many of these are known as 14ers, and their height reaches over 14,000 feet above sea level.

A Wilderness Lover’s New Years Resolutions

January 7th, 2015

We all like to make resolutions after a new year. It’s a time to start anew; a beginning to a newer and better you. At least, that’s what I read in a motivational book somewhere. In reality, it’s pretty hard to follow every new years resolution you make.
