And then, we climbed another 14er

Just a week ago, I climbed my first 14,000+  foot mountain.  And before I knew it, we were going up another!

Meet Mount Sherman.  He was a rocky fool.

A storm rolled in just as Beth and I were about to summit -- the boys had already  made it to the top and we knew we had to hustle.

We pushed and pushed and pushed to finally make it to the top, took ONE group photo (this is not acceptable for me), and hauled back down.  Ryan was really worried about the storm and told the group to walk as fast as we could, without falling down the rocks of course.

It rained on us a lot and Zia had to get a free ride in Ryan's jacket because she was so cold, but we all made it back safe and sound.


  1. You must do Mount Princeton. It is over in Buena Vista, CO. But if you ever have a weekend I promise it will take your breath away!

  2. YEAH!! WE CONQUERED THE MOUNTAIN!! That was so much fun. I can't wait to do it again! Well, once my butt and calves stop hurting, of course... :)

  3. I am so proud of you! I never knew what and outdoors girl you were.

  4. you posting all these amazing outdoorsy photos makes me want to try out hiking. f'reals. I know nothing is as impressive in Oklahoma as Colorado, but I wouldn't even know how to begin to hike. ha ha.

  5. You're a champ!! I wish we had some REAL mountains here to climb! Haha, there's nothing above 7,100 out here. and even then, those ones start at about 5,000.

  6. That's one thing Colorado has on Washington. More than one 14er! Congrats on another summit!

  7. thank you for the congratulations and encouragement, ladies!
