Really?  It sure looked like a trail, so we followed it to the top.

The courageous are undeterred by a worthy challenge; in fact, they’re inspired and motivated by the opportunity to overcome trying circumstances.  In that spirit of inspiration and motivation, my ladies and I assaulted this trail in spite of this signpost’s proclamation that it wasn’t a trail—-and in the process of our daring-do, we conquered the steep, red-rock crest of Devil’s Backbone in the Rocky Mountain foothills.  

We were pleased with our achievement!
