On top of the world...

This past Saturday, my very brave and very hyper husband went rock climbing with his friend, Jerrold. I am terrified of heights, and dreadfully out of shape, so I went shopping instead. But Kelly took along my trust little Canon Elph, and Jerrold was kind enough to take some shots as Kelly took the challenge and climbed to the top of that mountain!


Here is the view from the top, where they secured their lines.


Here's my daring husband, about half way up...



And he made it! He was filled with a sense of accomplishment, and a serious adrenaline rush, but said he felt every one of his 40 years!


Better him than me. Even when I was in great shape, I still didn't have enough upper body strength to pull myself up the side of a mountain!

Great Blog, fun wild life, great family, terrific photographer, you sound like you have a wonderful time with life.
I live in KY, Lexington, and just drove thru TN, love it. Significant other lives in Birmingham, so I go thru TN a lot.
Love your site.

The first picture is great! I would love to go somewhere like that for the photo opportunities, but I think I would also be scared of the climbing part. :)
