Mount Bierstadt

Pre-Hardrock altitude acclimation (PHAA?) included climbing several 14ers, as many as we could do in a week. They were all straightforward and accessible from Denver and Buena Vista.

We started with a fun hike with Ryan and Kelly, up Mt Bierstadt on a beautiful day. We were so happy to be back in Colorado! Wow, is the scenery amazing here, or what?

Starting out from the parking lot:

Lots of snow still around:

The final climb to the top:

It was pretty windy up there:

It was an excellent climb to get us started.

Love this photo:

Thank you Ryan and Kelly for a great day!
