Ascent Trip ReportWeekend hiking trip to the ADK with Rose and Grandchildren (6-9 years old), Stephen, Marcus, Patrick and Matthew.
We set out at 8h30 hours and got to above the main trail junction, within a few hundred feet of the summit, where the decision was made to turn around ..... Marcus developed stomach cramps.
Throughout the climb the boys fought to be the leader, the older ones taking advantage of the younger ones.
Patrick was really pissed, crying "I came to climb this thing and I want to do it."
A lesson learned by all on this day..... when in a group we take care of each other, also one has to accept the leaders decision.
"ALL GOOD THINGS MUST COME TO AND END."
