I love the high country, especially all our our Colorado 14ers. Mt. Bierstadt has some of the most beautiful views, and the hiking is pretty easy, for a 14,000 ft peak. It's usually the first peak people try if they are wanting to get into the 14er craze. This artwork was inspired by a photo by Courtney Albert who graciously allowed me to use it as a reference for this painting. Artwork by Julie Leidel, 2020.
