Ascent Trip Report

Below is why Aidan's grandparents are the best in the world. This email was in Aidan's Dad's (my) inbox this morning:

"Just got home from climbing Jockey's Ridge. We did all three of the tallest sand dunes to make sure we got the county high point for Aidan. A few hang gliders were trying, but failing miserably. It was somewhat cloudy, so the sand was not too hot. You can now add this to Peakbagger for Aidan. Photos attached." - Aidan's Grandma

Additionally, in a separate phone call, Aidan's grandma (my mom) informed me that Jockey's Ridge is not as tall as they remembered when we used to climb up it when I (Aidan's Dad) was a kid back in the 80's.
