14 14ers in 14 Days

Postby Devi911 » Sat Aug 11, 2007 9:59 am

Many thanks for the camaraderie on the trail as I set out to climb 14 14ers in 14 days. The 14er Project was met with great weather and good health - also resulting in some pretty good stories. Check out this link for photos and my "trip report" - a loose collection of thoughts and tales associated with my two-week trip hiking in the high country. I seek out formative experiences in my life, and this definitely turned out to be another. To return changed is an amazing, scary, exhilarating thing!


A fall from the third floor hurts as much as a fall from the hundredth. If i have to fall, may it be from a high place.

That's great! Congrats. Nice Blog.
"It is not the critic who counts, not the man who points out how the strong man stumbled, or where the doer of deeds could have done better. The credit belongs to the man who is actually in the arena; whose face is marred by the dust and sweat and blood; who strives valiantly; who errs and comes short again and again; who knows the great enthusiasms, the great devotions and spends himself in a worthy course; who at the best, knows in the end the triumph of high achievement, and who, at worst, if he fails, at least fails while daring greatly; so that his place shall never be with those cold and timid souls who know neither victory or defeat." (Theodore Roosevelt)

Great blog! I would agree that for me and probably many in this 14er community, those mountains are our element. I'm sure you've had quite the experience with hopefully many more to come.

Thanks for sharing :)
