This will probably be the only post today.
I am going for about a 6 hour hike in Fairplay, CO to climb to the top of Mount Sherman, which tops out at 14,036 feet. It is a “beginner’s” fourteener.
The weather looks great. There may be some clouds in the afternoon, when I am on my way down the mountain and off the summit. If time and weather permits, I am also looking to hike to the top of two other peaks, which are nearby, but lower: Gemini Peak and Dyer Mountain.
The hike is about an 8.4 mile out-and-back trail, rated difficulty is 5 out of 10, Class 2+.
The trailhead is a little over 2 hours from my house, which means it could be about a 10-hour day before I get home.
