One year after moving to Colorado from Florida, I turned 70. I met a couple of brothers from Texas on the Lake Como road and made my first summit on Ellingwood Point via the s.w. ridge with them. I've made a couple of summits since and a couple of attempts. Am planning another go at Mt. Blanca later this month. I get to see the Blanca massif every day from my front porch and it is calling my name...

On my 29th birthday, August 2012, Longs Peak via the Keyhole.

And, I've been obsessed with Longs Peak (I see it every day, while it's from a distance [Longmont], I still see it in all its glory [that cloud cover and weather allow]) and 14ers in general ever since.

Age 53. My boyfriend (who is now my husband) and I climbed Pikes Peak via Barr Trail. It was my first mountain climb ever and I was hooked for life. We have climbed several other 14ers since then.

My father lost his at 80 on Lincoln. He scooted up the east ridge (mining road) in about 2.5 hours.
I need more dehydrogenase.
