Mt. Sherman! Sure Man!

(Quick video I threw together on my phone…battling the wind for most of the footage I got…so it isn’t the best…but it’s something. I should also admit that the cairn shot is from mt. massive…shhhhh).

I finally climbed Sherman!  I had a blast!  The hike was unbelievably easy!  The weather was pretty good…minus the wind.  I brought my new pony, Sparky, with me and he didn’t spook at a thing!  I forgot to take his picture at the summit, so I pulled over at the side of the road at the end of the day and snagged a shot of him.

There were quite a few people hiking today, but thankfully I got up at a decent hour and beat the crowds.  The crowds that I didn’t mind were the crowds of pretty-pretty flowers! At the beginning of the climb I ran into two guys carrying skis, I told them they looked like they were embarking on a much more interesting adventure than me.  Not that my hike up wasn’t cool, but their way down looked like it was pretty exciting.  Luckily, I made it back down from the summit in time to watch them ski.  The first guy who came down had a nice run, but I was still walking when he finally went for it.  I scrambled to gear up my phone and held it as still as I could, but I’m not super proud of what I got. The second guy fell and took a bunch of breaks.  I knew I wouldn’t have done any better than him, so I wasn’t judging.

After all the snow shenanigans died down, I made my way back to my car while taking pictures along the way.  I charged my phone for a little bit and then headed up to the abandoned buildings.  I’m not feeling particularly eloquent with my writing today…so I’ll stick to mostly (poorly edited) pictures this time.
