Several weeks ago I was reminded why they call it the GRIND! I hadn't done the trail in 10 years and somehow forgot that it was such an effective method of torture. 2800 feet elevation gain over 2.9 KM. Ouch!!!
We hike with some friends of ours who brought along their 5 month old daughter. She was snug against Daddy and didn't cry once. Wow!!!
Here is Erin and I feeling tough for making it to the top.
