Just as the sun was setting the clouds broke over the mountain peaks and the mountains glowed. ✨💕✨ Sometimes the light is so pretty you just want to kiss the sky. ✨ Borrowed that one from Jimi Hendrix 😊✌🏼
First 14er attempt of 2018! Made it to the tree line, about 12,000 ft and ran out of trail. Spent a half hour trying to find a route to get up and it just wasn’t worth it.
All in all, I couldn’t ask for a better day to climb. 30 degrees and crazy beautiful. I definitely needed this. I’m 0-2 for the collegiate peaks, they’ve gotten the best of me so far but I’ll knock em out sooner than later. #colorado14ers#colorado#yale#mtyaletrail#co14ers
There is an energy in these hills. One of timelessness that has transcended through the countless tribes and nations that have laid claim to these lands. This energy has been a catalyst of countless tales of rebirth, renewal, and enlightenment. It is a very tangible energy, one that doesn’t require years of meditation or prayer. All that you need to do is show up and put one foot in front of the other. I promise, when you rise above the tree-line and look just how far you’ve come just by putting one foot in front of the other, you will feel it. As the alpine winds fill your lungs and you stare at snow capped peaks you will feel any fear diminish. For in the mountains there is no room for fear and without fear the world looks a lot more beautiful. Exactly the way it is. #altitude#altitudeiseverything#hikeon#mountainvibes#optoutside#fitfam#trek#trekthepct#14er#co14ers#alpine
A shot of my favorite 14er so far, if I were to rank them all by pure fun. Everything from the catwalk knife ridge to the summit is what I like to call “dreamy scrambling” with the perfect dose of spicy exposure. 🌶
If you zoom in closely you can see a couple specks on the summit. While we were on the summit of the north peak (unranked North Eolus) we traded cheers with the climbers on the main summit. Then, just as we reached the main summit the same climbers made it to the North Eolus summit, and we traded cheers again. 😆🤩😁
