The Fourteeners are mountains or elevated peaks that go over 14,000 feet of elevation. There are 53 (some debate 54) Fourteeners in Colorado, making it the state with the most Fourteeners. Alaska, California and Washington also have some Fourteeners of their own. Half a million climbers visit Colorado yearly to climb these breath-taking peaks.
