Saturday was climbing day at Giant City State Park, just outside of Carbondale, Illinois. Here's a shot looking up at a lonesome tree hanging on the very edge about 1/4 mile from where we climbed….
I found this interesting phenomenon along the trail….I didn't know rocks had these….did you ??
And now to the good part….this is my stepdaughter, Jill. No one should look this good after she's been out in the heat for hours on end. This was taken near the end of the day….
Here's Alex, Jill's younger brother, getting ready to rapell for the first time.
And here's another Alex…Jill's boyfriend's son. Look at the concentration !!
And last, but not least…a shot of Sabrina, Alex 2's big sister, rapelling down a 45 foot cliff. Isn't she one tough chick ??!! Her instructor is a guy she calls JD…Jill's Dad !!
So there you go, Climbing Day at Giant City State Park….next time I've got to get a shot of Gabe, Sabrina and Alex's dad….
