A the City of Rocks, that is.
City of Rocks here in southern Idaho is a pretty spectacular place. What it is, is a huge clump of granite rock that has giant portions of it sticking out of the ground. These giant portions have been eroded by weather over time to bring us what you see in the above image (and featured imaged too). Did I say the place is spectacular? Oh yeah, I did.
Me and my best friend Hyatt (as seen by a glimpse in the top Panoramic shot) set out to hike and find a bug rock that we could safely (within reason of course, it’s no fun if you make it too easy) climb. We had not climbing gear so we set out to do it the old fashioned way: with just our hands and feet! So we spotted a big rock that we wanted to climb and made our way to it, looking for the best place to scale without immediately tumbling to the ground 😛
After a couple no-go attempts….
…we found a route up the stubborn rock! Hyatt is in the following pics while I am nowhere to be seen. Somebody has to take the pics, yes? 😉
And after a little bit longer we finally made it to the top!
And of course we had to get down! So documented the journey via video 🙂 All in all it was a fun day!
