Not In My Lifetime!

Climbers at Red Rock Canyon.

There are hundreds of areas in which there is the best sandstone climbing in the world here  at Red Rock Canyon, Nevada. I don’t know if I’d be climbing a rock face without equipment as the couple above were–in fact, I’d never attempt a climb at all. I do admire anyone who likes the adventure and danger of climbing. In the photo below is pictured another climber directly below the couple at the top–he had a helmet and all the gear–way to go buddy!

Quote of the Day for YOU: Climb the mountains and get their good tidings.  Nature’s peace will flow into you as sunshine flows into trees.  The winds will blow their own freshness into you, and the storms their energy, while cares will drop off like autumn leaves.  ~John Muir

  1. Amazing photos and to think that once they get to the top, they have to climb down. Honestly, I love adventure and there are loads of things I’d like to try but rock climbing, outside of a controlled gym environment, makes no sense to me at all… God bless ’em! 🙂

  2. I used to do rock climbing way back in my youth. It was a thrilling experience, but I’d never go without all the safety gear. That kind of thrills, I don’t need! Red Rock Canyon looks like a beautiful spot.
