Mine was with me too! We were engaged on Elbert, so we've tried to do a 14er each year as a quasi honeymoon trip. This year it was La Plata, last it was Yale.

Back on topic, if I can sneak in a trip and the weather holds, I might try and tag Longs, then maybe Pikes once snow is down. Would like to be done with the front range, although I want to climb Pikes and Longs every which way.

If we submit a photograph, should it be of ourselves on top of a 14er, or just any photograph taken on a 14er?

I think each person draws the line at wherever that person wants to draw the line.

"Named" means officially named, by the USGS. Challenger is both officially named and ranked. And yes, I know your opinion of government. :)

Hey, my only government-related quibble here is the USGS's policy of not allowing the naming of anything in a wilderness area, which includes most of the 14ers. Before the establishment of wilderness areas, they accepted many colloquial names as the official name, after sufficiently long use, but no more. "North Massive." for instance, is a well-recognized name, but not "official," merely because the USGS apparently wants to freeze time. For the most part, I think the USGS is a pretty sensible agency (ATC), but if they can suddenly approve "Challenger Point" to pacify clearly political persuasions, then there's no reason why they can't recognize reality and approve some more grouind-based names that everyone recognizes. And Challenger can only be called ranked if one waives the usual isolation requirement. This, too, sounds like politics at work to me...

You can submit a photograph relevant to your 14er climbs. The author of the 14er article will select from any text and photos she receives to compose the article, and the Trail and Timberline editor will have layout space to take into consideration as well. Make sure you indicate what/who is in the photo. If the photo was taken by someone else, you should probably include that info. For all completions lower than the 14ers, only a list showing the finisher information is printed, no article or photos.

Here is a link to the Winter 2011 Trail and Timberline. The list completion articles are on pages 20-21 of the PDF file, or page 36-38 of the actual print publication.
http://www.cmc.org/Upload/ArticlesDirectory/30.pdf

The CMC has traditionally recognized 54 14ers, including unranked North Maroon and El Diente. The Highest 100, etc milestones consist of only ranked peaks (those with 300 ft of prominence), and thus include Challenger, but not North Maroon and El Diente. However, the 14er list has varied over the decades, and the generally accepted criteria for finishing the list has changed with it.

Actually, several people here with GPS have reported Challenger's true prominence is only on the order of 270 feet.
