Mt. Belford 14,197ft
In June the BeTheException.net team gathered in Leadville, CO. for a Kilimanjaro training climb. With snow still ample in the area Mt. Belford was a best bet to climb a 14er. At 14,197ft it was the highest mountain I had ever climbed. I had never been to Colorado before and I enjoyed experiencing it’s beauty first hand! The mountains are amazing! I loved getting to hike in the snow, and seeing so much wildlife. And I was overjoyed to finally get to meet all the exceptional women of our group in person.
On June 12th, we reached the summit of Mt. Belford in Colorado. At 14,197 feet it was an excellent training exercise for Kilimanjaro.
