from the outside looking in
There's nothing like climbing up a 75+' piece of solid rock, with your two toddlers, to make you nervous. I have climbed Backbone Rock by myself and looked over the ledge of a pretty perilous drop...and was totally fine. With kids, totally different story :)
Bennett cried when we had to leave. This boy would have thrown rocks into the river ALL day if we had let him. He has a pretty good arm, too.
This is somewhere on top of that 75' rock. A mercifully flat area, away from any dangerous precipices.
Don't worry. I did actually let them go out and "play" in the snow for a few minutes, I just didn't take the camera with me at that point. They thought it was pretty cool.
There was a single strand of spider web that had snow gently clinging to it....can you make it out in these pictures? Here's the hoping this winter is nothing like last winter..even though a good snow is fun...sometimes.
