Hiking a 14er

This hike actually took place about 4 weeks ago.  We just love to torture ourselves by getting up at 3:00 am to hike a 14er at the crack of dawn (to avoid any afternoon thunderstorms)!

The 14er we hiked was at Grays Peak, located about 2 hours west of Denver.  The views were beautiful and the wildflowers were everywhere!  It was a pretty tough hike especially near the top, and I was struggling quite a bit, but it was worth it for the views!

And on the way down the mountain, we got lucky to run into a family of mountain goats.  Super cute!

This is the third 14er hike I have done since living in Colorado.  They are not very easy hikes, but they are very rewarding, and I am always up for the challenge.  🙂
