camp has been talking about how the "little Muir girl walks". The trip to Goat Mt. is a perfectly safe one most of the way over a good trail but between five in the morning & six at night we climbed nearly eight thousand feet & walked twenty two miles. Mr Le Conte took the trip mostly "to show people that they could not walk" but a good many of them showed him that they could & he was pretty thouroughly tired out himself. When we reached the top there was a glorious view quite worth the long hard walk & then we had a lovely snow storm while we were up there & coming down a magnificent tobogan slide on a snow bank, the first one Ive ever had, it only took a few minutes to come down a place that had taken hours to go up. Besides the Goat Mt trip we have gone up Sentinel Rock, to Mist Falls, Bubs Creek Falls, Roaring River & Granite Lake.We have tried to do a little botanizing but there are very few flowers near here & it is hard to carry them from longer trips08552
