A fourteener refers to peaks that are more than 14,000 feet above sea level. Colorado has 58 fourteeners, and 700+ thirteeners. There is a club for people who summit all of them. I would like to join this club. Also I would like to visit Alma/Leadville, the highest altitude town in the US. They have an annual race called the Leadville 100, which I would love to watch.
Today was a powder day, a day following a snowy night, making snow conditions fluffy, like you are floating. Besides making snow angels and sledding, I had to shovel the driveway and walkway at our vacation rental. Tomorrow we’ll likely go snowshoeing, forecast is another foot of snow.
I like Colorado for long term visiting, like a summer but I don’t want to go to school here. It’s not that I don’t like it here, but I would need a car, and I am not ready to invest in one.
