Long Weekend Adventure # 1: Climbing

It is a beautiful weekend - sunny, low humidity, and 70.  Perfect.

Perfect for discovering a gem in our backyard.  Rocks. History. Water.  

The boys took an outdoor rock climbing course in a local state park.  The park is next to an old mill, a little river, and lots of hiking trails.  It was Perfect for rock climbing for the first time - outside for the first time.  It is quite different than in a padded rock gym.

We all loved it.
