The first 2 miles is regular hiking.This can't be too bad, right?
There's this part called Walters Wiggles.
It's major switchbacks.
It's the last 0.5 that is insane. There's a chain you have to hang on to because it's sketchy mountain cliffs. Add snow to that mix and you've got a recipe for a Sandy freak out!
See the light rock behind my leg? Yep, not much there right? Right. I'm on a tiny little ledge.
Somehow I made it. Almost cried once out of pure fear, but I locked it down. You can tell Mister had the camera 99% of the time. I had to focus on staying alive. I know, dramatic me.
Now, if only I had know how much scarier it was going to be on the way down I don't think I would be smiling in this final picture.
It's much easier to slip in the snow going down. But I did it. I had a great cheerleader encouraging me on. Actually, every hiker on the chain section was a cheerleader. We were all cheering and helping each other. I didn't look over the edge when we were on top, so I had to rely on the pics Mister took.
Next time though... I'll be sure there is no snow on the trail. And I'll pack a diaper. ha ha. Not.
