The Colorado 14er Project: Day 13

After a long day shivering in the frigid winds at 14,000 feet on Day #12 we were ready for another recovery day. So, for Day #13 we planned on moving camp from Leadville down to Poncha Springs. Along the way we’d do lost of touristy things and meet up with some great friends.

The Colorado 14er Project: Day 12

After a nice-and-easy travel day, we were ready to hit the ground running—well, hiking—on Day 12! With another early morning wakeup we found ourselves at the trailhead for Mt. Belford & Mt. Oxford before 4am. Join us as we knock off 2 more peaks, 2 drives, a water feature and a really cool coffee shop!

The Best Bits: Hawaii

At the beginning of February, Kendrick and I found a very very rare block of free time. Wanting to take advantage of it, we booked a last minute trip to Hawaii! We spent most of our time on the trails and in their spectacular mountains… mixed in with just a little bit of beach time. We visited Maui, Kauai, and the Big Island. It was so very difficult to narrow the video down to just 4 minutes out of 2 weeks, but I did it! Enjoy!

The Colorado 14er Project: Day 10

After a relatively relaxing travel day accompanied by perhaps a bit too much bourbon and beer, we woke up early to tackle our most ambitious hiking day yet—four 14ers! It may have seemed like we were completely neglecting the biggest part of our 14er project—hiking 14ers—but rest assured that it was all part of our plan!

The Colorado 14er Project: Day 7

When we began Day 7 we were almost halfway through our summer Colorado 14er Project. Looking back at some of the footage you can definitely tell we’re starting to get a little tired. But believe it or not, we were still having fun.

The Colorado 14er Project: Day 6

Day 6 was a return to early morning wake ups (one of the harder parts of this project) and the thin air above 14,000 feet (one of the more fun parts of this project). The 4:30am departure to the trailhead was rough, but that’s why coffee exists.

The Colorado 14er Project: Day 5

Day #5 of our 14er project presented yet another day of travel. Sure, there’s over 50 14ers in Colorado, but in order to keep our hikes around ten miles or less we had to do a little bit of driving. Luckily, this project has helped make our travel days a lot more exciting.
