We entered the Sun Gate about 45 minutes before and trudged through the light rain. The stone walkways were high and wide and seem to hang off of the mountains with steep drops over the edge. We were cold, wet and sore from so many miles but smiling. The feeling of accomplishing your goal is so powerful! We walked through the last offical gate at MP and celebrated with a hug. We will return in the morning for sunrise and our tour of the complex. And now? a hot shower, dinner and bed!
Woo hoo! We made it!
