Hiking Mt. Bierstadt

Husband has made it a goal to hike all 14ers in Colorado after having hiked Mt. Bierstadt over the weekend with a friend.  That’s a total of 53 mountain peaks.  He wants me to do this with him but I am out of shape and probably won’t make them.  I hope to at least hike up a few easier ones.

Husband used Sports Tracker App to track his hike.  The orange line shows start to finish and the camera icons are where he stopped to take a photo (the photos pop-up with touch on iPhone or Android, or mouse-over on the Sports Tracker website).  Just above the map are his stats.

The goal.  It doesn’t look too bad from this angle but from what husband has said, it’s pretty rigorous.  Btw, that’s husband’s friend in the photo.

This was the top (elevation: 14,060).  There were already others enjoying the view.

Panorama view.  Click on it to see it slightly larger.

When I go on one of these hikes, I’d like to go really early and be at the top to see the sunrise.
