14er Challenge Poster

Woohoo!  Look what arrived this week! 

I’ve actually had the poster for a few days, but I didn’t have a frame, so this afternoon I went out and bought one.   The poster looks much better inside a frame, even if it is a cheap one.  I bought a simple frame at Walmart because I plan on opening and closing it several times over the next few years and don’t want to invest too much on something that will most likely break with overuse.  Once it’s complete I’ll  get a nicer frame for the poster.  I hung it outside my bedroom door.  Rebecca noticed it when she got home:  “Oh, I see you already have your poster hung up.”

This 18 x 24 inch poster was designed as a kind of log of your 14er hikes.  54 of Colorado’s 14ers are represented from original paintings of the summits by Robert L. Wogrin.  There’s a small rectangle below each peak for you to write the date you successfully summited each 14er.  I plan to write the summit number in the boxes instead of the date, and I also plan to put a picture of me at the summit over each image as I progress.  In the photo I’ll most likely be holding a cardboard sign indicating the name of the summit, elevation, and date.  Yes, I know that’s a predictable and sort of following the crowd type of thing, but it’s what I intend to do.   I’m open to other suggestions?

Another idea:  Collecting a small rock (maybe 1.5 inches?) from each summit, then writing the name of the summit and elevation in Sharpee on the rock. If I’m successful, I’ll have 54 rocks from the highest points of Colorado.
