Pikes Pick: Outdoors enthusiasts should flock to 14er fest in Buena Vista
Outdoor folk and wanna-be outdoor folk, mark your calendar for Sept. 29-Oct. 1. That weekend, Buena Vista is holding the inaugural 14er Fest, which promises to bring together seasoned mountaineers with novices in a perfect place and time: the aspens should be gold across the Collegiate Peaks overlooking town. Group meet-ups have been scheduled among hikers, bikers, off-roaders and anglers, and three trail runs are set for Sunday. At night, venture back to Main Street for live music and libations.
