We got there, and they were very excited. I spent a lot of time yelling "slow down!". First, because I wanted to keep them close to me in case they lost their balance or footing, but mostly because they were dragging me up there faster than I go when I'm pushing myself in the mornings! Well, we made it to the halfway point no problem, and they were ready to push to the top, however it was late in the afternoon, and I knew that the 3.5 mile hike back down the Barr trail would eat up a lot of time. So we took the 1/2 way point bailout to the trail back down.
On the trail, we were passed by several people that were running... so of course, off they went... and again, me trying to rein them in. A few minor slips, bumps and scratches and they slowed themselves down a bit. But all the way down they wanted to know when we'd be back so we could get to the top.
Needless to say, add two more "incliners" to the rolls.. and yes, I am happy about that! Included a few pictures below, but to see the rest, check out the Facebook page.
Hope it was a great weekend for everyone..
