Instead of dwelling on this failed attempt at Sherman's peak, I focused my energies next on the Wheeler Trail. A route that followed the Mosquito Range from Blue River to Copper Mountain. The pic below shows a faint trail that contrary to the appearance was in my mind very ridable. My sister (inlaw) had just moved to Colorado and was staying at my pad until she and her boyfriend had their own place. So, in an effort to not be inhospitable I made this trip a fast but good roll along the finer points of God's green-rocky earth.
