Last Saturday, we finished another 14er. This one was especially awesome as it completed our Colorado 54 Campaign to fund clean water solutions for families in Nicaragua.
Mount Democrat (14,148′) is considered a Class 2 (Difficult Class 2, depending on route) and links to other peaks:
- Mt. Cameron (14,238′)
- Mount Lincoln (14,286′)
- Mount Bross (14,172′)
Unfortunately, with 2 hours of sleep because of freezing weather (that we were ill-prepared to sleep in), we only made it to Mount Democrat. Hopefully, we can crush the other three peaks before the end of Summer 2014!
We had a blast, and (collectively) ended up raising over $1k+ for families in need of clean water. We’d like to thank all of our contributors from the bottom of our hearts:
Michael Moore & Shawna Jones
Ashley & Jason Minard
Allie & Dan Price
Jackie & Tom Lindrup
Barb & George Davis
Please check out The Colorado 54 as well as Second Mile Water to find out ways to help & get involved.
What 14ers or hikes are you looking at conquering before the end of summer? Can you recommend any? There are just SO MANY great ones here in our beautiful state. Also, you may have noticed that we “skipped” 14er #3… can you guess which one it was?? Updates coming soon on more hikes and awesome local places to visit in Denver.
Come hang out with us on Facebook and Twitter!
