We're back! Highpointing trip reports...

...will be posted next week.  We managed to bag Colorado's 14,440-ft. Mt. Elbert, New Mexico's 13,161-ft. Wheeler Peak, and Nevada's 13,141-ft. Boundary Peak.  We had so much fun!  Details coming soon...

Very cool. Congratulations. That's an impressive trip. I did not do Elbert when I was in Colorado, but did a different 14,000 footer (Mt. Sherman). Dealing with the altitude is a whole different game. Can't wait to read your detailed report.

Congratulations! I am looking forward to seeing the reports. I LOVE the photo in your header.

I just finished reading your book, and so I decided to check out this webpage. Cool pics! You are all 3 very inspiring! I will definitely check back here to get the details on your Colorado trip. I went camping in the Rockies many years ago -- Beautiful mountains!

Hi Asa,

Thanks for the congratulations! Yes, I agree about the altitude. We spent about a week acclimating before we did Elbert. I'll write about our acclimation process in tomorrow's post.

So glad you all made it back safely. We only have 3 highpoints under our belts so far but we can't wait for our next trip.
