Ascending





What could be more energizing than climbing over 800 stone steps through a maze of waterfalls, rock formations, and tunnels? Why, doing it with two small children, of course! Some demon (ahem... baby) possessed Ben and I to race up the last steep staircase-- him carrying Lily, me carrying Zosia-- and I kid you not, there were people at the top who seemed concerned for our safety/horrified by our zeal. But the prize for the day goes to our "big girl" who climbed just about the entire mile and a half by herself, her right foot first on each step. I don't think anyone was complaining that there was a bus that runs from the top back down.

Gorgeous!! I had my first ever big hike this summer and loved it. You're right - it's energizing, but I couldn't imagine doing it with two kids!!
