Teething, cold and an ear infection have Pela feeling down. Since the pain seems to be worse when laying down, she chooses not to. Therefore mom gets no rest and the crazy cycle of crazy tired baby perpetuates.
All I can say is 'wow' about this place. Ryan and I were only able to utter, 'wow', and 'man', while we drove through these rocks. Everywhere another dome, and everywhere another boulder to climb. Ryan almost had to slap me because I was pinging like Beavis on caffeine. We climbed a large rock with a view, and Ryan climbed his first highball, a.k.a. very tall boulder problem.
Benni did well scaling rocks and dodging cacti. It's an amazing place to visit out in the hills of Idaho.
This is what I walked out to on my way to my car yesterday. We have a known pigeon overpopulation problem under the bridge where we work. The city has resorted to just shooting them. Notice the spot in the blood coagulation where the last breaths were placed.
We tracked down more rock and some solid altitude headaches north of SLC. We saw some boulders on a hill, but we took the rope anyway. The size of things up there is so deceiving we mistook the boulders for a small crag. With the proper motivation, I was coaxed off my back to flail on the climb. Ryan was hurling himself through this thing so much success that I got over thudding self and the three crags turned to one in my brain, and I thoroughly enjoyed giving it a go. It done whooped us both good. Silly little humans...
(Benni tolerated our pursuits with her usual class)
We were ragged after a long night through Wyoming(Ryan more than me, for he was master of the darkened roads, with maxcaffcapps from Little America) when we pulled into Utah. We loked for coffee and found little. We then shot up the canyon to find boulders. We found boulders alright, but we headed elsewhere to climb them. Amazingly large country out there.
