It’s the half-way mark for the year — celebrate by hiking one of Colorado’s famous fourteeners. This week begins the second half of the year — why not celebrate by hiking up one of Colorado’s famous fourteeners? There are 54 Colorado peaks that are fourteen thousand feet or higher. The Colorado Mountain Club reports that between 1922 and 2003, more than 1,000 people have notified the club that they have hiked to the top of all of them. The record for time is less than a dozen days (for so-called “speed” climbers) and the youngest age for a climber is believed to be 7. Mount Sherman is considered the easiest fourteener by many, since the entire hike is above timberline, and the distance to the top is modest. Mount Sherman is named after the Civil War general, William Tecumseh Sherman.
