I have been wanting to summit another 14er for months. Yesterday we climbed Huron Peak, one of Colorado’s 14ers, and were rewarded with beautiful weather, jaw dropping views and a 5,000 calorie burning butt kicking workout.
At the end of the climb I decided not to actually summit because of my intense fear of exposure and heights, but I climbed up to within 40-50 feet of the summit and to me that’s enough to check Huron Peak off my bucket list for now.
I spent the day with an awesome group of new and old friends, learned a lot about climbing through their wealth of knowledge and left knowing that I stepped so far out of my comfort zone I couldn’t even see it!
What an absolutely incredible day.
