All the laughing and joking stopped because we needed to catch our breaths and concentrate with each step up the steep climb (not so with the daughter)! And thank goodness for the chains to help steady and balance on all that rock with drop offs of 400-500 meters on each side! Whew! But what a view we had once we reached the summit; another gratefully stellar day.
BSoleille! The bright side of a tick off the old bucket list! Ha!
