We have mountains, LOTS of mountains.

One of the things I'm looking forward to doing this Spring and throughout Summer is attempting my first 14'er. Hopefully that will lead to me to conquer

I've only imagined what it would like to stand atop one of those looking across the Rocky Mountain range and taking it all in. Fortunately, I have found some recent inspiration on Instagram looking up the 10 tallest peaks.

It's incredible to see the joy on the face of likely exhausted hikers summitting the top of Colorado mountains.
