There are a lot of geese at The Rock – thus a lot of goose excrement.
Much ground was covered today. Starting with North Face was daunting for some as several older and frail pax stayed at the top and had a tea party while the rest made the ascent. YHC was humbled by NF on first descent as his shoes gave way on the tall wet grass – is was actually much easier to slide than to try and navigate a steep wet wheat field.
Turns out avoiding swings on the hand over hand at the swing set was a challenge. Several pax used the swings to lighten the load. Per MO, YHC delivered on the promise for pull ups.
It was the first time for several to mount “the Rock”. Volker lost some “bark from his trees” (aka skinned knees) and several newbies decided it would be a good idea to just sit up on top of the rock and take in the view.
