Well it was our last Friday before school and so our last time for our adventure group to get out.
So we decided to go hiking in Telluride. I found one hike that looked okay (if done in reverse) - yet it turned out to be a whopper of a hike - for the little ones. But the little ones all did really well considering - don't let you think none of them complained, though! Anyways, it wasn't a long hike, just a steep hike for the first half.
We got a lot of, "Wow, that's a lot of kids!" (We had 12 in our group.) "The kids are doing great!" etc., etc. Telluride is a place where the dog population most likely outnumbers the kid population, so I think we were quite a sight to see. :)
We were hiking in reverse - it was a loop - because I thought it would be a little easier. Also, there was a waterfall at the end if we did it in the reverse. We never did make it to the falls because we were told (wrongly) that the waterfall would be another 30 minutes once we reached a certain point. Later, when I was talking to my best-friend who lived in Telluride for years, I found out that we were probably just minutes away from it. Oh well, we ended the hike on a high-note and the kids were all happy. Success!
It was a good day - a fun end to our Friday adventurings. :)
