I hiked up the hill to the rims with my crash pads, both my Petzl Cirro (on my back) and one of my Petzl Alto’s (carried in my hand), and my iPad Mini to take some photos of the crash pads for a review I am writing. The temperature managed to hit 82ºF today and I was hiking uphill in the sun! Wow, was that ever a hot hike! I got a bunch of shots of the crash pads at different places with the rims in the background and each photo was taken with the idea of size comparison between the two pads in mind, as well as taking a beautiful shot with the rimrocks in the background. I had to hike a lot further than I had anticipated because the graffiti “artists” have been busy painting the sandstone with stupid signs and tagging the rocks with their unimaginative “signatures”. It just looks like garbage. People have no respect for nature any more. I really hate seeing that. Crime and bad taste aside, the hike was good for me. I got a little color, even! At least I know that I can get my crash pads up there by myself, should I decide to go bouldering by myself in that particular area.
Content Rating PG, for the most part
I try to keep the content of my posts in the PG range (meaning that maybe your 13-year-old should not read it... Just kidding!) - you know, something I could get away with tastefully in the town square without getting lynched, tarred-and-feathered, or hung (and something my mother would NOT wash my mouth out with soap for). As far as what age you have to be to understand some of the subtleties of my humor in writing and/or speaking, well... That may vary. A lot.
