I don’t know about you, but when I had a chance to have another adventure with a childhood friend I took it. I had faith. A camping trip, a chance to go back to favorite camping spots, only I got to go along this time. I imagined a hike along a trail through the woods, a camping spot with scenic views, so I was lugging my camera bag, which I came to regret. The reality was that I had to stick to using the iPhone for photos because what we wound up doing was blazing a path through the woods because there was no trail. And we crossed the river several times, which required picking your way over and around the boulders that filled the river bed. This part of the river didn’t always exist, a flood rerouted the river, downing trees and depositing these huge rocks. And the campsite was pretty much gone. Now that I know that we survived with only minor scrapes and bruises I can say that it was fun. I could just imagine how much fun it would have been 60 years ago. We would have scrambled over those rocks as if it were nothing. I can see us now…

Looks like fun and a really nice weather day! Is that a pile of balance rocks in the river bed?

Yes, it was. Which of course made me want to try to make one also, there were certainly enough rocks to use, but just trying to keep yourself balanced proved to be enough of a challenge.
