Pikes Peak marked the end of an impressive goal for 12-year-old Max Mason of Superior.
Max was only 8-years-old when he bagged his first fourteener. He was hooked.
He took on the 54 “official” fourteeners as well as four additional peaks that remain in dispute.
It took him five summers, but his quest was completed this year when he climbed Pikes Peak. The lonely fourteener was saved for the last intentionally – so friends and family could drive up to celebrate his accomplishment.
