Here Comes the Sun

Finally, a beautiful weekend arrived. Because you're never sure when you're going to get the chance to have another one around here, we tried to get out and see the sun while it was willing to show itself.

This morning we got up and hit Old Man's Cave. We got there a little after 9:00 which is perfect. Drunks are still sleeping it off, and the good folks of the world are trudging off to church. When we first arrived, we literally had the entire place to ourselves. We got to climb around the rocks and act like giant dorks without any witnesses.

Below are tons of pictures. They are jumbled and don't follow any real sense of order.




Some guy offered to take this shot for us. It hadn't occurred to me to ask, but since he offered I wasn't going to say no. For a large man, my legs are cartoonishly skinny. I thought they were a couple of strings hanging from my shorts...


Jen near the lower falls, hating me and my camera.


In the summer these falls have all the power of a three year old taking a whiz in the front yard. Today, after all the rain from last week, it was pouring. All throughout the park today there were dozens of impromptu water falls.

I believe these are referred to as the Lower Falls. Biggest in the park.



Yup.




The hiking trail pretty much follows this stream the entire way.















I'm going to stop now. I feel like that crazy uncle that makes the kids sit down and watch the slide show from their most recent trip to Colorado.

Daaaang...look at you guys! I hardly recognize either of you. I'm completely blown away by how dramatically you both have...CHANGED.

Oh, yeah. Nice pictures of nature and stuff too.

Thanks, man. It's been a long time in coming though. I'd push Jen in front of a truck for a cheeseburger and a beer...
