Pay the Toll Troll

Jack trying to spot the Grumpy Old Troll

We're in Zion National Park.  There are little bridges everywhere.  My son Jack is a big Dora the Explorer fan.  For those of you familiar with Dora folklore, you know about the "grumpy old troll who lives under the bridge."

Jack  has been looking under every bridge trying to find the grumpy old troll.  Since he hasn't found him, he's decided to become him.

So we're back at the Visitor's Center. He's standing in the middle of "his" bridge.  Two older ladies walk up and one of them sets one foot on his bridge.


Jack - or Grumpy Old Troll as he is now known - stood there with one arm straight out and growls at them (at the top of his lungs) "You can't cross my bridge unless you solve my riddle!"

They found another way across.

Oh my...a little too much Dora I think. That is totally funny though. What an awesome picture to boot.

has he grown any huge warts yet? If he keeps it up, you may not need to brush his hair before leaving the house. Should go right along with his troll bit!
