A baby who's climbed more 14ers than most other people

Next with Kyle Clark. 9/1/2016

Brynn turns one at the end of the month, but she's already been to the top of two 14ers, all thanks to her parents.

Her dad, Chris Baldwin, has climbed 38 14ers in Colorado. He's kind of a pro at this point.

He carries Brynn, and a big backpack full of food, water, sunscreen, diapers and even a changing pad - all the way up 14ers.

Chris told us about the moment they reached the top Grays Peak last month.

"When we crested the top, and the view from the other side of the mountain came into perspective, I was looking at her face. and she literally, she had this - she let this big breath of air out, and just had this big sigh, and smile on her face. I had never seen anything like it. She's only 10 months old. To see a 10-month-old baby's perspective view like that is pretty magical."

Chris says - if you're even thinking about bringing your baby up a 14er - be sure to plan ahead.

Know the trail well - and pack lots of water and snacks.

He says it's also important to make sure the baby doesn't get altitude sickness.

Keep them hydrated - and be sure they stay alert.

Brynn, her dad Chris, and her mom Jennifer, are going to try to do one last 14er before winter.
