ANYWAY the point is, not only did I do it; I SURVIVED! And here are some pictures to prove it.
This is the beginning of the incline. I was already out of breath at this point from the steep walk up the parking lot.
This is the no trespassing sign, because technically it's illegal to hike the incline...probably for insurance reasons since there are SO MANY WAYS YOU COULD DIE.
This is what I looked like about every fifteen seconds as I was faced with how much farther we had to go/my own humanity.
One of many breaks. I think Michelle deserves some sort of patience merit badge. LOVEYOUMICHELLE.
Oh look, it's me. Taking a break. Again.
One time Derek took a break! But it was really just to take this picture.
And this was my reward. Well, this, and an ice cream cone from Josh & John's once we got back into town.
