When Chris's sister invited us on a real hike with her family, I was a bit worried. Our lungs weren't used to the altitude anymore. But we all wanted to go.
The cousins waited up at the top for us. Totally un-winded and un-dizzy.
There were so many mosquitoes up at the top that we only enjoyed the view for a minute before we decided to head back down with our itching bites and crying Maggie (who face-planted off a boulder while she was trying to rock climb like the big kids). In this picture, you can see Maggie crying and Ethan spraying bug spray on Jeremy. It was lovely at the top. But it did make us swamp-dwellers miss the mountains.
Going down was much easier, luckily, and Chris and I didn't have to stop and take pictures of ourselves being winded and dizzy again.
