Every once in a while I like to share something personal on my blog and I know all of you outdoorsy couples love seeing my epic mountain photos, so here is a little about what I do on the weekends when I’m not booked for a wedding…

Climbing fourteeners has always been a passion of mine and it is one of my all time favorite summer activities!  My first ascent was with my father during high school, Mt Democrat, a pretty easy hike out of Alma, Colorado. What was your first 14er climb?

My toughest climb was Crestone Needle, near Westcliffe, Colorado – that one is for the true adrenaline junkies, ropes are recommended and the summit, yikes, there isn’t much room up there!  My all time favorite fourteener was definitely Mt. Elbert, located near Leadville, Colorado.  A very long, but very rewarding and gorgeous hike!  I highly recommend it!

I just love this view of the Sawatch Range; Simply Stunning!!  Here is a picture of my group at 14,440ft on the tallest peak in Colorado.  By the way, in case you were wondering – Mt. Elbert is the second-highest summit in the contiguous United States, less than 100ft shorter than Mount Whitney in California.

The winds will blow their own freshness into you, and the storms their energy, while cares will drop off like autumn leaves.” John Muir

    My grandson is interested in having his senior pictures taken at Gilman, CO. Please advise as to the charge per hour and if that includes the pictures. Please also advise if there will be mileage to be added to the charges. The deadline for submitting pictures to the school is October 31. I appreciate your consideration and look forward to hearing from you.
