For Doctor Reverend Martin Luther King Junior Day, I went for a fun short hike near Monument, Colorado, that a friend told me about. I was able to summit two peaks and get a good workout in. The drive to the trailhead isn't that far for me either. The weather was really nice throughout the day. It took me 1 hour and 15 minutes to go from the trailhead to the summit of Mount Herman. The traverse from Herman to Raspberry Mountain was 25 minutes. The descent from Raspberry back to the trailhead was 35 minutes.
