We started from Inspiration Point just after noon. The ascent was pretty smooth until the snow! I was glad there was some still out there to give them some thrill. However, Reagan saw this as quite the obstacle for some reason. All the hikers out there were grabbing trees and making it across. They really missed out then when the whole trail was covered!
They were excited to get to the 4-way because that somehow signaled the beginning of the end of the climb. Plus, I had promised some amount of rock jumping/climbing and the stairs were what I was eluding to. But Kayla was done being in her backpack by this point. 0.2 miles of straight up climbing. Can this 2 year old make it? At least she has buddies to lead the way.
They sat down for a minute and butts were dirty. Then there was some kind of butt clean-off party. This is a SERIOUS adventure, guys. Geez.
That’s how you work. Everyone would ask, “how old is she?” Two! Suck it.
Reunited at the top with Mom, who had the snacks.
Oh wait…going for the full summit. No wussie runner’s summit!
I have a plan.
To your right…
We stayed up top for a bit. Busy place. Girls signed the log book, of course.
Thanks for getting out with me today, ladies! We had some challenges but we made it just fine. I hope you will go again in 6 months. Or maybe sooner.
We went 4.36 miles with an elevation gain of 1,554 feet in 03:26:49, which is an average pace of 47:23. View my GPS data on Garmin Connect.
