Sometimes we go to the mountains for their awe inspiring beauty. Sometimes we want the challenge. As a mom, my days are spent cleaning up messes, feeling overwhelmed, and not enough. I go to the mountains, to remind myself to live. To remind myself of the beauty within my own “normal” life. I go to the mountains to be thankful for this life I have to live. #thankful #somewhereonahike #14er #14ersofcolorado #womanstrong #mountainclimber #mountainclimbing

A monthish ago, @chrstphrschwng and I summitted Wetterhorn Peak. On the way down, we made the spontaneous decision to hike the nearby Handies Peak at sunset the same day. We rolled up to the trailhead late in the afternoon and did not see a single person on the trail. We felt like we were on top of the world, regardless of how exhausted we were from a weekend of 30 miles and 12k elevation gain (and loss).

It’s Thanksgiving week! Small seeds of gratitude will produce a harvest of HOPE.
.
Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday are my gratitude checks.  I challenge all of you to post what you’re grateful for.
.
This is just a small portion of being grateful 365 days a year.
.
Today’s gratitude check comes to no surprise.  Being that it’s #mountainmonday I’m thankful for the mountains, and both of my legs that get me up them.  Thankful for my lungs to breathe and my eyes to see Gods creation.  I realize not a lot of people get to experience things like this so when I’m tired, legs are heavy, and say I never want to go through pain like that again,  every time I’m off... I give thanks that my body was capable of doing that, and thanks that I came back alive, because I know a lot of people never come back...And then I do it again. 😄 #thankful #thanksgiving #co14ers #gratitude #14ersofcolorado

I'm so happy I decided to invest in hiking and backpacking over the past few years. Being submersed in nature, combined with the challenges of the hike/climb, as well as the opportunity to relax and get away from the busyness of life has been the ultimate reward for me. I can't wait to hit new and exciting trails in the future! @agalcius (&Z.

It is #NationalTakeAHikeDay! Local photographer H.L. Standley was an avid hiker and a founding member of AdAmAn. This image was taken of Standley by R.L. Chadbourne while hiking Wetterhorn Peak in 1940.

Great heights and full hearts can often be found in the same place. 💕 This week @whoa_wo_joe is in #colorado for his annual hunting trip with the guys... so of course I’m spending the week wishing I was in the #mountains too. This is my #tbt to #mountantero. This rock field is the last big push before the summit. When this photo was taken, I was definitely ready for my summit beer and some skittles. Taking time to look back on #hiking pictures from this summer makes me smile, what wonderful times I’ve had with my head in the clouds.

This is Pikes Peak which is named for Zebulon Pike. While the Ute Indians were the first people to be documented at Pikes, a people known as the Clovis Culture were known to be in the Rocky Mountains as much as 12,000 years earlier. 
The Ute people called Pikes Peak “Sun Mountain Sitting Big” and believed that the entire world was created here. Pikes Peak was acquired by the United States with the Louisiana Purchase.

Concurrent with the Lewis and Clark Expedition exploring the Northern portion of the Louisiana Purchase, Zebulon Pike was given the responsibility of exploring the Southern portion. In the autumn of 1806, Pike and his party set out to explore what he had named “Grand Peak” from their encampment in Pueblo, Colorado. Having only summer clothing, Pike never summited the mountain on this trip or any subsequent.

The first documented summit of Pikes Peak was by Dr. Edwin James, a naturalist with an expedition out of Nebraska seeking the source of the Platte River. Because of his summit, the leader of James’ expedition, a man named Major Steven Long named the mountain “James Peak”. In 1840 the name "Pikes Peak" was adopted by the Army's Topographical Corp, led by Major John Charles Frémont. Frémont held that while James had been the first to summit the peak, Pike had been the first to document its existence and therefore the name should be his. There was a peak to the North which was later names for James. #pikespeak #history #14ersofcolorado

Wishing I could climb another 14er with my mom, but she says we have to wait until next year since winters coming.
Fun fact: Mt.

Locals observing the proper trailhead at the Sierra Blanca Massif.  From here at 7800ft the 4x4 road grinds another 9 miles up to its disappearance around Blue Lakes at 12300ft.  I met a climber on the summit of Holy Cross this summer who was on his 4th round completing 14ers who said it was this access road up Blanca Peak that compelled him to buy a Rubicon.  Sisnaajini 4,374m.  Sacred mountain of the East. White Shell.

Sketchy start to the day, but still managed to attempt Mount Princeton.  Time wasn’t on my side so I didn’t end up summiting, about 1,500 ft short.
.
Disappointed? Yes.
.
Mad?  No.

It’s all about the process of the 58, not the destination of the 58. Win or fail I end up learning something. 
Usually about myself.

What a day of climbing. We started the day off at 4am and reached the summit of bierstadt for the sunrise. Then the real fun began. We descended down the northern face of the mountain through variable snow, ice, and rock to get to the ridge. Traversed across the ridge which was a whole adventure in itself and then up to the sawtooth for the second summit of the day. From there is was pretty smooth sailing along the west ridge of Mt Evans, bagging West Evans on the way making for a 4 summit Saturday. It was a long brutal day that was one hell of an adventure. As an added bonus we also got to watch the sunset on our descent which also meant bush wacking in the dark. All for a grand total of just over 15 hrs in the mountains that I’ll never forget.
