This past Saturday Brittany Walker joined the club of people to have skied or ridden down all 54 of Colorado’s 14ers. This puts her number 9 in the overall list currently consisting of Lou Dawson, Chris Davenport, Ted Mahon, Frank Konsella, Jordan White, Joseph Brannan, Christy Sauer Mahon, Jarrett Luttrel and now we add Brittany Walker.
Part of what makes Brittany’s success a bit more amazing is the fact that she blew out her knee part way through the project. After spending countless hours rehabbing and training to get back to climbing and skiing she started back in on her remaining list. It has really been a joy to see Brittany knock em out and shrink the list. I think all in all I had the pleasure of skiing 11 of the 14ers with her. Brittany has come a long way in her climbing ability, and really did a great job of working her way up to the hardest climbs as the skiing has never really been an issue for her. Looking back on some pics of our trips together brings back great memories. And I am looking forward to more trips and more skiing in the near and distant future.

Congrats again Brittany! You have done one hell of a job with this project and I am excited to see where your motivation takes you next.
