How ironic is it that the day we are supposed to blog about R is the day my husband and his friends plan for us to go rock climbing? Haha!
Today was the first time we have been rock climbing in a while. It had just been so cold and I am not a cold weather climber unless it is in a gym that is warmer. But anyway, that is beside the point. Today, was so good to get out and rock climb. I meant to take more pictures, but I just had too much fun climbing and enjoying the fresh spring air. I took a couple and will show you those pictures first and then I will post some other pictures from previous rock climbing expeditions. I realized just how long it had been since I had rock climbed. My fingers were definitely not wanting to hold me to the wall today. Haha! Time to get back out there and climb more so that I can get my strength back up. Waitressing definitely keeps the strength up in my arms and hands but not my fingers.
Here are the pictures from today!
Faelyn heard turkeys down in the valley and was ready to go hunt them down. Haha! He was perched up there for about ten minutes just listening and ready to pounce.
TJ carrying the crash pads with the dog almost pulling him down the hill. They were both super happy to be out and are now both pooped after running around.
This is at one of our favorite climbing places at school. It used to be an old rail road bridge. But the bridge became too unstable for a train to go across and so they moved it over and the old pillars still stand and are owned by the Lynchburg Climbing Club. It is just wonderful and so much fun to climb. On this one we definitely use rope.
This was just a couple of months ago and the place we were at today, Hunter Rocks. We do not use rope here because the rocks are not very high and so landing on crash pads are all that is necessary to break our fall. We love bouldering.
Time to go shower off and get ready to go out for dinner with my hubby!
