 My 2nd 14er summit   

It was a fun day hiking on Grays.

Age 9
Second 14er
Time up 3:15
Time down 2:45

We woke up at 3:00am and got ready to leave. When we started,it was 5:45am. Here is a pic from the start of the trail.

Later on,we crossed a few streams,they were about 3 inches at their deepest,unless you went a ways off. Near the rocks was a HUGE cairn.

Image

A little ways away is the rocky path,a difficult class 2 slightly slanted wall with a path that is very rocky.

Image

Near the top, I decided to do some rock scrambling because we lost the trail .

Image

Less than 1/2 a mile later,I had summitted my first 14er of the year!
