Ok so I am posting a lot of different blogs tonight… to explain, I snuck my computer on the trip and so I am typing each this post while camping so I can copy and paste it into my blog when I get back. Each post is a different typing session and if I had internet access would have been posted at the time I typed them. I know I could put them all together but I’m trying not to make them too long.
So there wasn’t a whole lot to Thursday. We got up early, ate breakfast and headed for the trails.
We managed about half the trails before breaking at 1pm for lunch. Then we went back and covered the rest. We managed to see every single cave by time we were done. We got back to our site around 5:30pm. Altogether we hiked for a little over 6 hours…. Talk about calories burned! I know that what the calculations say have to be off too….. I’m going to track it as cross county hiking, but most of it was up rocky hills and stairs. There were times we were almost climbing to get to the next cave. We decided that we have to go back but allow more time to explore because this was way too much for just one day, and at the end it felt like we were rushing just to see the next cave since we had to leave in the morning.
My oldest daughter ended up falling 4 times – each time hitting the same spot on her leg. The bruise she ended up with is huge and really swollen.
Right now Jen’s getting a good fire going and we’ll be eating soon… walking tacos tonight, and I don’t feel the least bit guilty after all the calories I burned today.
