hiking timp

A week or so ago Ethan, Chris, Bruce, Suzy, and Roger all hiked the grueling trail to the top of Mt. Timpanogos. It's an all-day hike, and they left early in the morning. I made Chris promise that he wouldn't let my son or my husband fall off a cliff. I guess it all worked out because I still have both of them, and pictures too!
These pictures are probably out of order, but I didn't hike Timp, so I wasn't there to know which part of the trail is which. Also, I stole many of these images from Chris's dad because Chris was in more of them and also his pictures were better than the ones Chris took with our little camera :), so I wanted them for my family's blog book.
 apparently this little squirrel (or chipmunk?) saw what was in Chris's backpack and was determined to get it, because he crawled right up Chris's leg to get at it.
Almost there...
Made it to the top! 
 Ethan signed his name to prove to the world he was really there.
Here's Suzy, Ethan and Chris on top of Timp. And in the next picture, it's Chris, Suzy and a few of their siblings on top of Timp way back when Chris was Ethan's age. Glad Chris and Suzy grew into their hats...
 Look! There are some gators at the top of a mountain! *chomp, chomp*
 This is looking down from the top. They came home sore and exhausted, but said it was really fun. Ethan has always been an amazing hiker, and even though his ankle and body hurt by the end of the hike, Chris said he did a great job.
