On the way up, Max was not happy...oh my goodness. He tried the whole "I'm going to hold my breath and pass out on you" and absolutely refused to enjoy the walk. But after a snooze in the backpack, he woke up a new man...ready to go! It was awesome! While holding my hand, he walked for AN HOUR through rocky terrain, hills, steps, and every obstacle imaginable. He just kept going and going...WOW! We were all quite amazed with his tenacity!
