As you can see, the only outdoor gear that fits me at this point is Tony's raingear! It worked wonderfully, and allowed me the fun of sliding down the snowbank on my butt and not getting wet. Definitely a better idea than trying to walk down!
Our friends Jeremy and Jamie brought their daughter, Avery! She made it up the rocks all bundled up.
And, finally, we made it back to the trailhead. I suppose doing a hike like this as large as I am is somewhat of a feat, because the others cheered for me and took photos. I was beat, and fell asleep on the way home!
Proof I was big ol' preggers!I think even Buster was impressed! As for exhausted, the dog definitely wins the prize... he is still sleeping!
