Jackson has been begging Todd to take him up a 14er all summer long. Some of his buddies at school have gone with their dad's and I think he was feeling a little left out. Luckily Todd loves to hike, especially the Colorado 14ers! They decided on an easier mountain to ease J into it and Sherman was picked.
Our whole family drove to the trailhead late on Friday night (since we were planning to stay in the Breckenridge area Sat, Sun and Monday). We had hoped to camp but by the time we got there it was late and very dark, so we blew up the air matress and all 4 of us snuggled up in the back of the Tahoe! That is how memories are made!!! Todd and Jackson were up at the crack of dawn and started their ascent. Sammy and I (thanks to the uncomfortable night in the car) were able to spread out a little and we slept in until 9! By the time we got up, re-packed the car and got on the trail ourselves, Todd and Jackson were done. We met them at an old abandoned mine near the trailhead and explored for an hour or so.
