Rock Climbing – Elevenmile Canyon (Day 2)

Sunday, September 27th, 2009

Kris Starting Hollow Flake (5.6)

Goofing off on Arch Rock
It was a chilly morning, so we all gathered around the fire trying to get it started. The wood was even harder to get started as there was a little rain in the early morning.

I noticed the Trader Joe’s bag had been infiltrated. A small 2 inch hole was carved out of the bottom corner, and the same hole was in the ziploc bag. Mice like homemade bread, enough to eat plastic!

For breakfast we had pancakes, left over dumplings, and ramen soup. It was cold, and the hot food warmed us up since the fire was completely inadequate. (more…)

Rock Climbing – Elevenmile Canyon, CO (Day 1)

Saturday, September 26th, 2009

I had so much fun at Elevenmile Canyon last month, I decided to go back once more before winter. Steve & Kris were both game to join us for the weekend, so we were sure to have a fun time. Emma & I jumped in the Subi and took off for the granite domes.

We found a campsite in the Cove (#3 I believe!). It’s a really nice site, and has a hidden spot for one of the tents…so Emma & I had some privacy from the guys. It was her first time on a climbing and camping road trip. I was so excited I could share this first experience with her! (more…)

I woke up on Saturday, excited about touring Disney. We decided to focus our energy on the Animal Kingdom and Epcot Center. There was so much to see, even in these two parks, I didn’t know if we could do it justice. (more…)
