The Great Outdoors
I love spending time outdoors and living in Colorado. I have balanced my free time by hiking (especially the 14,000' Colorado peaks), skiing and am just getting into rock climbing.
Note: Many of the pictures here are taken by my friends Ben, Amanda and Nevko, thanks for the good pics!
Sunshine Peak: 14,001'
One heck of a "short" mountain, with my friend Ben
Huron Peak: 14,003'
The first 14er I ran (...well for the most part)
Wetterhorn Peak: 14,015'
Fun times climbing with Nevko!
Mount Sherman: 14,036'
One heck of a long day through deep snow, unplowed roads led to a stuck car and a few extra miles of hiking, gotta love winter hikes
Handies Peak: 14,048'
A fun Penn State Crew!
Sunlight Peak: 14,059'
Now that's how you top off a 14er! This ending is a bit exposed. My friend Nevko is also in the picture (just below me in blue).
Mount Bierstadt: 14,060'
Hiked this with my brother (his first 14er) on his 16th Birthday

Windom Peak: 14,082'
Mt. Eolus: 14,083'
Snowmass Mtn: 14,092'
A bittersweet hike, an awesome mountain and beautiful day...but a bit surreal when we would later learn
that some people we met on the summit had an incident during the next leg of their hike just an hour
or so later on Hagerman Peak (shown in this picture, 08/25/12 12:45p).
Mount Democrat: 14,148'
Mount Oxford: 14,153'

Went on a cool hike, Mt. Elbert: 2nd tallest mountian in 49 US States (all but Alaska) topping out at 14,440 ft.
It was a very clear day at the top and thus have some great pictures available here Pictures
