So, a few days ago I went out for a hike with two of my fellow geocaching nutjobs (er...friends...) and my dog. At one point in the middle of the hike we had to climb up a very steep field of rocks that looked like this.
Except that the stairs were blocked off with locked gates, so they weren't an option. Pretty view anyway, huh? And yes, those stairs go just as far down as the picture makes it look like they do. Ugh.
Now check out the *reason* we climbed that minefield of boulders, otherwise known as the view from the top.
I LOVE this hobby. Even if my pooch must think I'm completely out of my mind. ("Hey, Mom...you know I'm a dog, not a mountain goat, right??")
