Today my kids joined me for our 3hr13min member hike up Ironedge.
On the way down the trail, my daughter was chatting up a storm. One topic rolling right through to the next. When I finally grabbed her attention and whispered that her constant talking might be annoying to others in our group, she shrugged and said, "What's hiking without conversation?" She was right and we chatted the rest of the way down. Even better, the kids received outstanding compliments on not only their hiking performance, but their behavior and fun personalities.
