This was on some of the poles, on our ride up. Yep, did that, check. 2015-01-05

Ok, well, the chair lift didn't take us ALL the way to the top... our feet did that! 2015-01-05

We made it! (Much fussing-by-a-young-child later,.....) 2015-01-05

And now, to hike back down to the chair lift, via that path... (-Just in time, too - the clouds rolled in before our eyes!) 2015-01-05
