I think this is the best picture of Brian with N2 that I got on our trip.
N2 enjoyed this hike and were quite cute hiking back. They decided they were going to be good junior rangers and they were going to help people up the steps. Every time we got to a step (on the way back), N2 would rush ahead and wait at the stairs to grab our hands and "pull" us up. They would even help each other up! They would also tell us to watch our step because that's what rangers do.
After our hike we returned to the visitor's center to turn in N2's junior ranger books. I was SO impressed by the ranger who reviewed their books and did the little ceremony. I don't think anyone lived up to this first ranger. She was so excited to see their books and ask them questions about things and she really listened to what they had to say. Her enthusiasm was amazing. They had to say a pledge at the end. Noah was quite reluctant each time we did it. He wouldn't pose with the ranger but Natalie did.
