 Empty Mountain   

It has been quite a while since I was able to get out into the mountains and since I had the day off from work (Thanks to Martin Luther King Jr day) I decided that I was going to get into the hills. The weather forcast wasnt vary favorable since it dumped a bunch of snow over the weekend so avalanche conditions were not going to be stellar. I decided that I was going to try Mt. Sherman since the slope is manageable and it is often wind blown! My buddy Gray was free so he decided to join me and we made the drive to Fairplay early in the morning on Monday and had a great time...

I usually do a typical text trip report but for 2019 I promised myself that I would try to take more video and do some video editing. Call it a resolution... Anyhow, this is the first attempt at doing video editing. I hope you enjoy it.

Iâve done a few summer 14ers but been wondering what a winter summit might look like. Definitely have a little better idea after your video. Great job! Thanks for posting.
