At the beginning of February, Kendrick and I found a very very rare block of free time. Wanting to take advantage of it, we booked a last minute trip to Hawaii! We spent most of our time on the trails and in their spectacular mountains… mixed in with just a little bit of beach time. We visited Maui, Kauai, and the Big Island. It was so very difficult to narrow the video down to just 4 minutes out of 2 weeks, but I did it! Enjoy!
Day #5 of our 14er project presented yet another day of travel. Sure, there’s over 50 14ers in Colorado, but in order to keep our hikes around ten miles or less we had to do a little bit of driving. Luckily, this project has helped make our travel days a lot more exciting.
After a day of “rest” we had to get back on the trails. Afterall, if we were going to succeed at hiking fourteen 14ers in 14 days we couldn’t take too many days off. So, on Day #3 our alarms rang at 3:30am, we hit snooze a few times, and finally dragged ourselves out of bed.
On Day #1 of the project we decided to go big and feature at least one item from each of these categories. This was going to be a long day so we started with a 4AM wakeup call to get an early start on the drive to American Basin to hike our first 14er—Handies Peak (14er #1).
