Here's where the trail begins. 1,048 stairs, steep stairs! We're sitting on #1 -- see how deep it is?
The view at about 300' up.
About 300' up. A patch of shade at the bridge where we guzzled water, snacked and then scrambled over a stretch of steep, loose dirt in order to avoid the "bridge".

But not a peep of complaining the whole day!
Here's the so-called bridge.
