At the bottom of the cliffs, we stopped to take a break.
A couple of us walked up the the base of the rocks, where a stream flowed down the cliff face.
It was a pretty serious exercise, almost completely vertical, but satisfying. The trail went around the cliff, instead of up them. After arriving at the top, we walked down the road to the restaurant for lunch.
They had some pretty great BBQ at the buffet. We then walked/slid/fell back down the trail, until we made it back to the cars. It was tons of fun, and I appreciate my friends greatly. Looking forward to the next time I see them.
