This past weekend, we had some visitors, so we decided to take them to one of our favourite hiking spots. We love hiking and there are so many great spots near where we live, and they are all so diverse! One of our favourite places has amazing red rock, although if you drive another five minutes past, the red rock ends, and you end up in a completely different type of mountain rock and topography! It is incredible.
So we hiked up a trail we've hiked before, but this time we went further than we've ever gone before. We ended up at this towering wall of red rock that looked like a cross between the moon and Mars! It was red rock (Mars) but covered in these small holes all the way up (Moon), that made perfect hand and footholds for climbing! It was so beautiful and totally unique!! Our boys of course had to climb it, although it was steep! Coming down ended up being scarier than going up, with some overhangs that made it difficult to see where your feet should go. Thankfully everyone made it down safely. It was an amazing climax to an awesome hike!
Here are the photos. It was such a picturesque spot and I was thrilled to get some good shots of the boys climbing...
