14er’s Climbed–The Peak Bagging Page

I’ve started a collection of 14ers that I’ve hiked, listed below. A ’14er’ is shorthand for a peak or mountain that stands above 14,000 feet in elevation. Colorado, my home-state, happens to be the most well-endowed state with 53. Many people have turned this into a challenge, trying to summit all of them. I haven’t formally committed to such a goal, yet, but I’ve had fun knocking a few off the list. I’ve also documented a few 13ers and other favorite peaks in this collection because, why not? Like thru-hiking, peak bagging is somewhat of a niche outdoors activity, with its own unique difficulties, rewards, and community. But I really just love to hike and be in the mountains, so it’s no surprise that standing on top a peak, regardless of its height, appeals to my core values.
