On our last full day in Colorado we hiked one of the state's 14,000 ft mountains (there are 54 "14'ers" in Colorado and it has become a popular challenge among hiking enthusiasts). This one is named, "Handies Peak" and it's located outside of Lake City, CO.
It was a phenomenal experience within an unbelievable day. We will have to share the full story about the entire day when we get time. But it ended with a Google Maps fiasco that caused us to drive 9 hrs to get 38 miles (from 8:30pm till 5:30am). We are EXHAUSTED!!
Check out the pics and see if this is a challenge you would like to do one day.
I'm so proud of Laurie!! She led the entire trek and CRUSHED IT!
