Mt. Bierstadt ~ Colorado

Mt. Bierstadt.  14,065′.  My first successful 14er. When I first began hiking, my partner had asked me if I wanted to be a 14er. I had no idea what that was.  I was new to hiking.  Not getting lost in the canyon next to my house, was a challenge for me. But I felt something…

Charlies Bunion via Appalachian Trail

My hiking bucket list is very long. It’s such a cool feeling to be able to mark a hike off that list, every once in a while. Last April I did just that, by hiking to Charlies Bunion via Appalachian Trail. My first hike in the Smoky Mountains was amazing. The views were stunning, the…

Lady In The Wild

Do you want to hike a 14er? I had this question presented to me by my now fiance, back in 2015. I had to google what a 14er was, because I had never heard of it before. After discovering a 14er was a mountain peak with an elevation of at least 14,000 feet, I had…
