In 1979 my friend and I signed up for COLS (Christian Outdoor Leadership School. We met up with 23 teenagers from all over the U.S. From Denver we were bus bound to Camp 1 which was in the Texas Creek area in the Sangre's. we met up with our councelers and for 3 weeks we rock climbed, ran 10 miles, obstacle courses, slept under the stars...climbed Spread Eagle, hiked Lake of the clouds and learned more about life in those 3 weeks which shaped my life forever. My live for the mountains began then...but has continued and passed on to our children and has seen my husband and I continue to come back to hike up other 14ners...we celebrated our 30th this past August by summiting Mt. Belford. I owe my beginnings to COLS. if anyone knows of this organization I would love to hear from you:-)
