Pikes Peak 07.11.16
My time here in Cripple Creek, Colorado is almost at an end. I have been so fortunate this Summer to perform alongside such amazing people and to be in some beautiful and hilarious shows. One of the added bonuses was that I got to climb some of Colorado's beautiful mountains. My first hike was up the Eastern flank of Pikes Peak which stands at 14,110' at the edge of the Great Plains.
Mount Massive 07.18.16
The second of my Summer hikes. Mount Massive stands at 14,421' to the North of Mount Elbert, the state's high-point.
Crestone Needle 07.25.16
The third hike and most strenuous of my hikes was up Crestone Needle which stands 14,197' in the Sangre de Cristo Range.
Mounts Democrat, Cameron, Lincoln & Bross 08.15.16
The fourth hike was a traverse of four peaks which stand around a high cirque in the Mosquito Range. Mounts Democrat, (14,148') Cameron, (14,238') Lincoln (14,286') and Bross. (14,172') all circle a beautiful valley, and can all be summited in a fairly easy circuit hike around the connecting ridges and saddles.
Pyramid Peak 09.07.16
My fifth and most technically difficult hike was up the treacherous Pyramid Peak which stands 14,018' southwest of Aspen in the Maroon Bells Wilderness.
Mount Bierstadt 10.11.16
My sixth hike was up Mount Bierstadt (14,060') from Guanella Pass in the Front Range. A snowstorm had recently left a few inches of snow.
