If you never play you’ll never win - Above & Beyond _ Heading out of the Ansel Adams Wilderness back towards Silver Lake. Zoom in and you can see Mono Lake in the distance.
This happy little hiker really hit her stride on this hike. It was her 6th major hike of the summer and was definitely her finest showing! Smiles all the way, and no chocolate covered almonds required for bribery up the slopes! I love it when we find our hiking groove.
It's amazing the stamina kids can physically build up to. Kids need fitness training just like adults do! We always have rusty legs at the beginning of the hiking season, but by the end of summer we have really found our groove (and our fitness!). Luckily fall hiking is some of the best hiking! I hope we can keep it going throughout the fall this year.
