Yesterday we hiked part way up Liberty Cap Trail with DS, DIL, and 5 GC. The first part wasn't too bad with a little elevation increase. The second part was almost straight up. DS said we gained 100 feet in a short way. I forgot my camera but the views were wonderful. DH, DIL, GS and me turned around and went back down. We had hiked about 1 1/4 miles before turning back. DS and the 4 older GC went on up to the top. The youngest that went was only 5.
Our 2 1/2 yo walked or ran most of the way up. DS carried him in his backpack about 1/3rd of the way up the steep part. He walked all the way down. When we got back home, DIL and I did Just Dance on the WII for about 25 minutes. Had a wonderful day.
My calves are really tight today. Going to have to do some time on the treadmill with the inclination raised to get into shape for our next hike. Glad the weather is getting nicer so we can do more of them. It is much more fun than walking the treadmill.
