|Spencer and Natalie|
We brought Calvin's friend, Spencer, and my nursing school beastie, Cher, with us. Cher and I have been taking classes together for the past 1.5 years and it was fun to have her come too.
Soon after the start of the hike we broke into two groups. I was with Natalie & Spencer and Cher, Mariah and Calvin were in the lead. Natalie is not really fond of hiking and I was surprised she wanted to come with us. It is a very steep hike, steeper than Timp, and about 7-8 miles. It is so steep that I slipped a ton and had to climb the trail using my hands and sort of crawl. Natalie cried a lot of the way up and down (sorry Nat but that is the truth- I still love you :) and I had to make lots of bargains with her to keep the complaining somewhat minimized and decrease the crying. I think she is glad she did it now that it is a done deal but I don't know she will ever do that hike again.
