Rimrock Hike

I'm not sure this counts as "travelling," since the lovely Rimrock is only 30 minutes from my house, but what the hell. I don't have anything better to do, do I? (Hint: no, I do not.)

We (read: Brice and I) took the wrong access road, so we had a quick detour to Jake's Rocks, but then we made our way back to the main road. A few more minutes, and wham-bam-thank-you-ma'am. We were there!

We hiked around, Brice looked for some good places to anchor his gear, and our explorations culminated in a game of "lava" - aka mountain goat academy. Saying I lost would be an understatment, he's like a little monkey-thing. He did some rappelling and a couple of free climbs, I snapped some photos, and we explored a very small cave by cell phone light.

I'll spare you all the details, because if you're ever in Warren County I can take you on the tour first-hand. So really... this post is just an excuse for pictures. They're all of Brice doing fun things while I figured out the features on my new camera, but I think they're share-worthy.

Brice trying to anchor his ropes to the edge of the cliff.

Having fun on the short wall because his rope wasn't long enough for the tall cliff. Pobrecito.
