The Colorado Mountain Club is Magical is the most comprehensive on-line resource for all things Colorado 14ers. You can find anything you need to know. From route descriptions and pictures, recent trip reports and trail head conditions, to tips and training advice, its all there. Once Andy and I had two 14ers under our belts, we knew we wanted to do more, and I have been on 14ers constantly ever since. Every summer, without fail, people will die while climbing Colorado 14ers. Its the nature of the beast. The mountains are unpredictable, and even the best training and preparation can not compete with being in the wrong place at the wrong time.

The Beginning

I was never outdoorsy. In fact, I was the opposite; a city girl. I never camped, or hiked (save for the few times with my family as a kid), and not only didn’t I have an interest in the outdoors, I despised them. I didn’t want to be uncomfortable, and there was no doubt that being “outdoors” was out of my comfort zone.
