Colorado Fourteeners by Year

Six years ago I climbed my first Colorado fourteener and made a goal to climb one more each year (year two = 2 summits, year three = 3 summits, etc.) for at least the next five years. Last year I met that goal and decided to continue on for a sixth year. Yesterday I hiked to the summit of San Luis Peak, which is my sixth fourteener this year. From this point on I don’t plan to keeping up with this goal since there are plenty of other peaks and backpacking trips to keep me busy during the summer months and I don’t want to spend too much time concentrating on completing fourteeners. I’ll only be hiking a couple each year starting next summer, probably no more than five. I find that it’s nice to spread them out and enjoy them instead of knocking them out quickly like many people do.

Here’s a list of my 14er summits for the past 6 years.
