tired little legs began to feel the heat. we talked of rattlesnakes and of the extreme weather. of trying to cross this land in only the wagon we had slept in the night before. there was talk of returning to the air-conditioned car and we were so thankful that that was an option for us at the end of this trail.
oh how i love their perseverance. we kept walking and then we found the climbing rock. it was immediately a favorite thing to climb on and to jump off of. it was conquered quickly and just as quickly jumped off of. everyone had a turn and it all ended too quickly.
