Basics of Walk to the Top The children counted every 15 minutes that they walk. For each 15 minutes the children put a pair of boot prints on the mountain poster with their name. With lots of families participating, we had enough boots to make it to the top of the mountain by the end of October. Kirsti A. Dyer. 2009. Creative Commons Copyright.
