The Hard Part. The Big Hill. The Trail the rangers overwhelmingly said "not to miss." The last half of Peekaboo Trail. The Trail we renamed parts as being The PeekaPOO Trail, due to the abundance of horse poop. The Trail where Littlest Dude pooped out (and got a piggyback ride). And then I pooped out (but didn't get a piggy back ride). The Trail where we drank every last drop of water we brought (and we brought a lot).
See these adventurers of “advanced age” below? I never saw them again. They left me in their dust. (so humbling!)
