Ascent Trip Report

This was an especially exciting ascent of Gray's Peak because my six-year old son summited with me! This was his first fourteener; I was so proud of him!
We arrived at the trail head at about 8:OO in the morning; I carried my fifteen month old son on my shoulders to 12,500 ft and at that point my wife and twelve-year old daughter went back to the XC90 to watch movies, and my two cousin's and I continued to the top. The weather was beautiful for a majority of the hike and didn't turn ugly until we were almost back to the parking lot. I didn't get to hike the the saddle to Torre's Peak because everyone else was too tired.
