Yesterday we decided to go for a hike on the Ridge. This is a beautiful hike along the Manastash Ridge outside of Ellensburg. It’s about 2 miles long and you climb about 2,000 feet. It’s a steep climb. There is a trail that goes along in the woods though that makes the ascent a little easier, and we decided to take that route. It eventually meets up with the other trail which is steeper and which ascends to the top of the mountain (as I like to call it. Davey insists that it is not quite a mountain!).
We hadn’t necessarily intended to go all the way to the top, but once we started going we decided to go for it. We did take frequent breaks.
We worked our way up up up, and finally we reached the top!
When you get to the top, there is a book to sign, and so we signed it making note of the fact that it was Davey’s first time! He was disappointed that we didn’t bring something to leave at the top. Next time, I told him we would.
He’s ready to go again!
