In the Summer of 2011, our goal was to finish climbing all of Colorado’s 14,000 ft mountains. James started checking them off his list when he took road trips with his friends to Colorado in high school and college. When we moved to Denver in 2006, I started joining him. We had a long way to go with 36 left for James to complete and even more than that left for me. We spent about 2 months living out of our Nissan Xterra ticking as many off our list as possible. After hiking 240 miles and almost 100,000 feet of elevation, we finished just shy of our goal due to a knee injury and finished the summer at 31 peaks.
