During a short family vacation, Rachel and I climbed Mt. Cameron — her first “14er” — that’s a peak 14,000′ above sea level. To be exact, it’s 14,239 ft. or 4,340 m. At age 9, Rachel beat her brother Jay, who has climbed seven of them — because he got his first one at age 15.
The rest of the family? They had already gone to climb a few more adjacent peaks.
