At one point, there was a "shortcut" that a bunch of people were taking. We thought we'd try it too! The shortcut turned out to be a long cut. Instead of going straight over, it curved around and by the time we made it to the bottom, we were now at the end of the pack. Sometimes, shortcuts are not worth the hassle!
There was a point where we were uncertain as what direction to go next. Many decided to turn around and go back but we decided to trek forward.
Good thing we did because not too much farther away, was the lookout point.
Xander flirting with Claire! Just kidding, he's probably telling her a fantastic story about skeletons and superheroes.
Proof that I was there!
On the way back, I pretty much gave Xander a piggyback ride the entire way! The kids were great and we had a fun time hiking with the ward.
