My daughter, Shannon, has been climbing/hiking a number of 14ers recently with her faithful Golden Retriever, Sunny. here are some pictures she took or had taken by fellow hikers.
Colorado has 54 mountain peaks exceeding 14,000 feet (known as “fourteeners” or “14ers” by locally) — the most of any state.
Outdoor enthusiasts of all skill levels will find peaks ranging from easy to very difficult, with hiking trails for exploring the state’s scenery, wildlife and rugged beauty.
The first shot taken about 6:30 a.m. just as the sun is rising: Gray’s and Torrey’s. The remaining photos are of Shannon and Sunny and another dog. She held the leash while the dog owner shot the picture.
And what did Shannon say upon her return? “GREAT hike of both peaks; perfect autumn day…the aspens are changing…beautiful…drove up this morning to Denver and then up into the mountains that way and then drove back through the mountains…nice drive back…but I am BEAT.
