What a beautiful day it was today. Skies were clear, temps were crisp, and winds were moderate as my son and I set off to climb the mountain. His previous two attempts resulted in him reaching the South Gate entrance and the junction. This third time would result in him reaching the summit. We took plenty of breaks and went at a leisurely pace but he still needed some assistance up some of the hard parts. Anyway, I'm quite proud of the little guy .
