HA!!! (you wish!!!)

Promises promises. It looks like I'll have to go back to California and pay YOU a visit! :)


I almost broke my back climbing up a tree during the Blue Moon over the summer... THAT was scary. No problem getting up it, barefoot... and NO problem falling right out of it. The bruise on my butt was ridiculous.

I love the video of the climb!

It brings back memories from days gone by. There were a lot of pain and scratches involved in tree climbing! Especially if you had to shimmy up. When I was just a tot, I'd head up the longleaf pines, up to where the branches were, and look down upon the house and woods. When the breeze would blow the tree would sway, and make for a pretty exciting time in the crow's nest.

There was an art to it, too, selecting a route and techniques, and knowing which branches were good and just how much you could rely upon the others.

Rock climbing followed easily and naturally from it, but there was no rock where I was young, barely even the occasional boulder. Lots of wonderful trees, though.

Come to think of it, everything was a free solo. I'd forgotten all that entailed!

Unlike the rock, the trees were alive - constantly changing, flowering.

And they were filled with birds and squirrels, who did not especially appreciate incursions by large clumsy animals.

How about a picnic up there?

Beautiful imagery, Crock ... so peaceful.

I have always been drawn to trees...always. And the wind.
Thank you for sharing your wonderful thoughts.

Picnic in a tree... I'm FOR IT. Just need someone to climb up the tree with me!

Leggs,

We'll have to pick the right tree for that picnic. Especially if word gets out and there's a crowd.

If I tried climbing in a skirt and heels I'd be a bloody bruised-up mess. No wonder you don't dare move! You guys must have had fun setting up that shot.

I know I wouldn't look so good either. Wow!

Haha! Can I get an AMEN!!??

You're awesome, Crock. :)

(and yes, that photo shoot was awesome... and of course it was my idea to climb the tree) {smiles}

Oh Larry, were you jumping again and get hung up? Which area? Gemini? I'm holdin' you to the promise of teachin' me how to do that jumpin' and flyin' stuff....I'm aiming for the Tombstone thingy....maybe it'll be my tombstone. Jump down then pedal out to Hurrah Pass or Amasa Back. Yeah, dreams of living large for this old gal!

Hope to be back out that way soon

(Great photos... animals in their environment... love it. Hopefully their environment remains THEIR environment, and does not become ours)

Thanks for posting up!
