I wonder if we are just trying to make good time or if its because this notorious stretch of road is one place that a tourist bus like ours just shouldn't stop.

PS. The bags did arrive, later on that same afternoon. We were very happy!
... a few pictures of our group and then started down the 3,500 Penitential Steps at 6 a.m. Although some of us slipped, after two hours of very careful descending at approximately a 45 degree angle we joined those who had come by way of the camel path. Both groups arrived at the bus at the same time.
