Morning Last day

Looking down canyon

Heading down canyon to the Sundance Trail

We are heading to the trail that takes us up and out.

Coming to the base of The Sundance Trail

A surprise on the way

At the base of the trail to the top!

A pretty steep grade to get to the top

Adjusting before the ascent

Heading up 1150’ in less than a mile

Feels like almost straight up at times

Watch your step!

What a trail!

We started at the bottom by the little green patches

Posing with Dark Canyon in the background

Hard walking

A short breather for a photo op

Pretty steep climb

Stopping for a photo. Dark Canyon in the background

A look towards Dark Canyon

Coming out at the top and a look into Dark Canyon

Tim on top

Marianne made it! Dark Canyon off her left shoulder

Lynn looking as goofy as ever.

The handsome trail boss and keeper of the maps

Well we made it to the top!

Well, maybe not all the way to the top!

Really? Up again?

One more push to get all the way up!

Marianne navigates some steep steps

On the top!

The last leg of the hike. On the way to the Sundance trailhead and vehicle. Until next time…
