4,000 meters is an unrecognized altitude threshold within the United States. However, it is as well known where the metric system is used, as 14,000 feet is known in the US. This page is dedicated to climbing those peaks in Colorado that rise above 4,000 meters (13,123 feet)

I’m Back

It has been over a year since I have meaningfully written on this blog. And I miss it. I have had several changes in my life in the last year and my priorities and interests have been more dynamic than in past. That situation is slowly resolving and I am getting used to a new life. In any case I really miss writing and blogging and have decided that I need to bump up my priority for those activities and get back to it as I find that writing has a positive effect.

In addition, after I finished my 40 X 50 (40 peaks by age 50) that my enthusiasm for getting to the top of mountains has waned a bit. That’s true. But it hasn’t gone away completely. I did climb last year including Mt. Flora, Mt Sherman, Mt Democrat, Beyers Peak, and a few others and I still plan on putting up a least a few peaks a year including some 14ers. And of course 13ers.

With the kickoff of Wilderness Trekking School with the CMC I realized, and this was as good a time as any, to get back to my interests of hiking, climbing, photography, and writing. I need to challenge myself. I need to meet new people and make new friends. I need to see the sights. Take pictures. Write. And of course do those things in life that make being here on this planet at this time, fun.
