 Mt. Sherman - my 4th   

START: 11:10 am
SUMMIT: 1:10 pm
DESCEND: 1:45 pm
FINISH: 3:05 pm
TOTAL TIME: 4 hours, 5 minutes
TOTAL HIKE: 3 hours 20 minutes

I started late, but found plenty of room to park with several other pickups and SUV's past the open gate, and that cut my round trip hike down to 4.22 miles (per MapMyWalk, the app I use on my smart phone).

I filled my lungs nicely at breathing stops by turning to face the wind along the ridge. I had to get my gloves and stocking cap out along that stretch because it was chilly.

When I reached the summit, I looked around with several other hikers for an elevation marker, but we were not able to locate one. I thought all 14'ers had them. This was my fourth 14'er. I have also hiked up Gray's, Bierstadt, and Quandary.

There was very light sprinkling on the way down, but it was hardly noticeable. I saw a couple of marmots near the mines. They didn't seem disturbed by me, but I was alone, since it was about 3pm and most hikers were long gone by then.
