Today I’m thankful for climbing on big rocks.
Yes, I was totally acting like a kid again today while I was hiking by myself in Cathedral Rock National Park today. Don’t worry Mom, I let other people know where I was going and when AND left a note on the windshield saying what trail I was taking and what time I started. 🙂
In some places the trail seemingly disappeared into the rocks… In some cases I climbed over, in some I shimmied I between two boulders. Some required small leaps, and others involved using all four limbs. At one point I caught myself with my arms stretched out and my hands on one boulder and my legs stretched out and my feet on another boulder, and there I was looking down into a 20′ crevasse! Nothing like that to get a little adrenaline pumping. 🙂
Between all the scrambling, climbing, crawling, and jumping I had a blast and felt like a kid!
