Victoria and I did our first Colorado 14er – an easier one only an hour from Denver. Mount Bierstadt stands at 14,060 feet tall. We started and ended up at the Guanella Pass Trailhead. The 7.3 out and back took us 5.5 hours including an hour and forty minutes of rest time. It was about 30 degrees out with winds 20-30 miles per hour. We had snow on the summit and during our descent too.
