These photos scream, “My life dating a boulderer”. It isn’t so bad, I love being outside, around rocks, climbing whenever, and being with wonderful people. BMW Boulders is a small, underdeveloped bouldering area near the Red River Gorge. This area was actually on a local resident’s property, we found out, but they were very supportive and happy to help us find the boulders! The day was so beautiful (October, I love you!) and pictures were necessary! Nevertheless, for your viewing pleasure.
It would be a misrepresentation of my life if I did not dedicate a post to the many trips I’ve taken to the Red River Gorge in Kentucky. Since beginning to lead climb in 2016, a solid group of friends and I like to go to the Red River Gorge every weekend we are able. We camp at Miguel’s, and we usually eat pizza. Although, we’ve been enjoying the Red River Rockhouse lately as well!
Last year, David and I went on a whirlwind trip to Utah and the Grand Canyon. We had our share of setbacks, including challenges in finding a place to camp, rain that prevented us from climbing in Moab, and a 3+ hour delay due to a massive car crash in the middle of a canyon with alternative route. All of that said, it was the highlight of 2016, and it was the first taste of the beauty of Utah and northern Arizona that had us planning our next trip before we even made it home! And I must say, David is the best travel partner – he constantly has the best attitude, sense of humor, jokes, and ideas for a good time!
Here are a few pictures from our October 2016 tour of Utah and the Grand Canyon. We also made a youtube video of our trip, which features Enya’s Anywhere Is (an anthem of our trip).
