As mentioned in the above video.......ROCK from the first step...but MacGyver didn't lose his rock hopping skills!

I'm a distant second behind MacGyver.

But once to the top of the ridge.....what beautiful sites overlooking Pamerton, PA!

On day 4 we hit a couple of milestones!

Some great views near Kittatinny Mountain

All happy at dinner time!
