Today was our day, baby! I said heck with all the research, let's just get out there. Let's go somewhere that we're familiar with and kick it up a notch.
Caris and Graham accompanied me. Canaan was too little, Alif was too Laker-obsessed, and Malachi was too disrespectful. Here are the two excited hikers at the mouth of the trail! (I know, in a few months I'll laugh at myself for all of my totally wrong terminology. Sorry, real hikers.)
I told Graham it would be great if he took a picture of me so I could prove I was on the hike too. He laughed and said, "Yeah . . . like you just let us go down here alone and everything." LOL Alright, alright, true enough.
