The day after Christmas we went on a hike to Potato Chip Rock. I was worried it would be too hard for the kids. It was about 2.5 miles up the mountain and then the same going back down. Everyone online said it was hard. But they totally did it! Leon even walked the whole way. It was great.
We passed a teenage age group on our way back down and they looked tired. One was cheering the others on. When they saw us they said, "if they can do it than we can." Little did they know that these kids are amazing hikers! The only other kid we saw the entire time was a 12 year old girl. And it was crowded.
I think I'll go one morning without the kids and do it much faster, then spend twice as long taking pictures. It was crowded, but we went the day after Christmas when most people had off work. I think if I go early on a week day it won't be as crowded.
