The Screaming Squirrel

So everyone woke up except for Jason. He was asleep in his car, but whatever. haha. Long Night! He finally got up and we cleaned up camp and packed everything into the cars and put out the fire, then headed out for breakfest. Yummy! We really didn't eat much that night, cause no one felt like cooking.  We went to the Screaming Squirrel! Sound good doesn't it. lol.  I had the pancake breakfest. So tasty. 2 pancakes, scrambled eggs and some bacon.  After we ate we then drove up to were the trail was to hike up to the waterfall. Then the hike began. uhhh. lol. I'm so out of shape. :(  After we got maybe a 3rd of the way up there, we discovered that the trails were covered in slick ice. haha so not a good idea with me, I'm accident prone.

lol, I always get hurt.  So we continued up the mountain, they were all making it look easy, I seen them fall a couple times but they weren't having as much trouble as me and Jason. I would rather go really slow than fall and get hurt. There was a part where I caught up to them cause they went up an imposible way and Brandon couldn't make it so I actually beat Brandon up. haha victory. Just kidding. We all got up safe thats all that matters. So we were up there for awhile and James had climed all the way up to the top of the waterfall, I would have never made it up there haha. He was the only one that tried. Way to slippery for me. He had climbing gear and reppeled off the waterfall. Pretty sweet! So after that we hung up there for awhile and just talked and enjoyed the sites.

  Then FINALLY Jason makes it up lol!! Jason is cool but he took it even slower than I did. It was still cool, he was proud of himself that he made it all the way to the top. We stayed up there for maybe 10 mins after Jason made it up and then came the hard part. Comming down! lol. The ice was so slick it took twice as long to get down than up. As we were going down, I sliped on a piece of ice and sliped down this 2.5 foot mini waterfall and landed right on a rock. My butt hurt so bad. I took it really slow after that. Didn't really have and other falls after that, but so sweet I found a shortcut! I saw the road and was like, I'm not going to slip again, so I cut throught the trees and bushes and got on to the road. Was so stoked, but the road wasn't a road, it was someones driveway and said no tresspassing.
haha I fell.
lol, I really didn't care cause my butt hurt and wasn't about to fall some more. The driveway lead to where our cars were parked. The road was covered with gravel, and little pebbles, right when I steped on the pebbles I slid and fell on my butt, AGAIN!!!!! OUCH!!! haha, I had to laugh, like nature was paying me back for taking a shortcut. haha. I was fine and we beat everyone to the cars. By alot more time than I thought. haha. So we then left and were on our way home! Everyone was tired and the guys that rode in my car passed out. I was so tired I couldn't wait to get home and take a nap.  Droped all the stuff off at Ashley's house and droped the people in my car at Brandon's house, which was right down the street, lol they were too lazy to walk. About 10 mins I was finally home, went upstairs to my room and I passed out. Good Times thought.
