We had a lot of fun riding up the mountain on the trip. I saw many animals on the way. I am particularly impressed with the squirrel from Colorado. They look weird. Other animals that I thought were squirrels turned out to be not. My kids assured me I saw a beaver.
I felt the thin air at the mountain top. It made my head dizzy. However, my children seem to take to it okay as they were still rushing to and fro all over the place. I was careful to look over the sides of the steep drops. I believe I was dizzy enough to tumble down, head over heels.
