This is a friendship that we can and should all aspire to… and it comes with a story.
These two, Colleen @rockymountainhigh_co and Collette @peaks_and_pizza are known to you as our Women Who Hike Colorado ambassadors. This picture, of them summiting Pyramid Peak was taken one year to the day that they met in person… thanks to the @womenwhohike community.
Colleen had just moved to Colorado from Rhode Island and has completed the NH48 in the Northeast. She was one of our first Feature Friday women and when she moved to the Rocky Mountain state, she naturally set her next goal of climbing every 14er in Colorado. Collette became a member of Women Who Hike and she was someone within our community that caught my eye. She too was also in the midst of the same goal, of climbing all those 14ers and I, @Im_NicoleMarie thought they should meet.
I made the introduction through Facebook and within a week they had climbed their first 14er together, Mt Massive. Since then, they have been on many adventures, hiking trails, mountain tops and have both been leading Women Who Hike group hikes together in Colorado.
This is a friendship that maybe wouldn’t have happened if it wasn’t for @womenwhohike, and we know their story isn’t the only or the last one we will get to tell here. Social media and our online communities (facebook groups, instagram) as well as our group hikes are the start of bonds being created that we hope will last a lifetime. There’s so many mountain moments to be created and shared… and we want one of them to be you! Visit our website, join as a member (you get our #wwhmember patch and sticker) and also find women just like these near you in our Facebook groups (link in bio).
