1772 feet

When Mike first introduced himself to Josh, he told Josh his last name was Going, "as in going, going, gone!" and that is exactly how I remember their first discussion. It was the perfect way for Mike to help Josh recall his name, seeing as it is not necessarily one of my husband's gifts. Here we are on our intense hike with the Going-going-gones!

Admiring the lookout. Boy, what a claim-to-fame for Missour-ah. Doesn't it just make you want to visit our great state?!

The hike was successful for only part of the time. We did finally make it into the forest, but it was only good for about a 1/2 mile. Huntleigh didn't really want to ride in the backpack and she kept tripping and falling over all the rocks. We had several meltdowns before we realized it was probably a better idea to turn around, then to try to complete the 3-mile loop.
