Today Aunt Kim I went hiking – well, I guess you could even say mountain climbing – at Red Rock. It was pretty intense. In the beginning, we were all like, “This is soooo cool.” “I like how you don’t have to stay on the stupid trail here.” “Let’s climb up there, let’s climb up there,” and “Look how far up we are!”
After about an hour, we realized that we should probably turn back. Then we started saying things like, “Um, how are we going to get down?” “Did we come from this way?” and “Do we need to be on that rock? Sh**.”
Eventually, as it got hotter, and as we started having to slide down rocks, we began saying things like, “Sh**.” “F***.” “We are f***ing morons.” “We are going to die.” “We forgot to bring the cell phone to call the rescue helicopter.” “Oh my f***ing God.” “S***, don’t fall!” and “God damn it, motherf***ers.” It was a very interesting experience.
When we finally found our way back to the trail, we were like, “Holy crap, look how far we went!” “We are so f***ing awesome.” “I am so thirsty.” “I am so hungry.” “Thank God we found our way back.” “My legs hurt.” “We must have burned a ton of calories!” “I am so sunburned,” and “I took 75 pictures.”
After we got back to the car, we had to drive 13 miles on a scenic one-way path to get back to the main street.
We got to see some lizards, cacti, and desert rodents on our little excursion, but no wild burros – it was pretty neat. If you want to see the rest of the pictures, check my picture website — the link is on my profile and I’ll have them up by tonight.
