Hiking group tackled the back side of Flattop today.
Almost 20 kids made it up to the bench below the saddle Between Flattop and Peak 2.
The first group to arrive aptly names themselves the "Hardcore Group."
These boys gave me a good workout.
The rest of the crew arrived shortly thereafter.
And even though many kids were happy to arrive at a destination, six kids wanted to hike onto the saddle.
They were happy to find snow, and then,
the wind hit.
Proud ,strong group.
The views, the flowers, the wild wind and the sense of accomplishment made for a joyful group of kids! Climb on!
