Are you ready for this? Follow along as I take you on a quick journey that guides you to my next entertaining reunion.
Meet Hayden, a childhood friend that I grew up with in Folsom, California. He recently extended his travel wings and met me in abroad in Central and South America. Here we are on a jumper flight in Costa Rica!
Remember Ann and Colin? This is the sweet couple that enhanced my volunteering in Ecuador with their fun loving, open hearted energy.
Peru is the place in which I got to introduce these three amazing people to each other as we bonded our way to Machu Picchu!
During these fun days together, we talked about reuniting in the states and how someday they could teach us how to rock climb. Two months later Hayden and I found ourselves heading to reconnect with our pals in the famous national park of Yosemite!
Fun fact #1 – Over 4 million people visit this National park a year.
The camping bags are packed and the climbing gear is ready as we hit the path towards Yosemite!
A reunion complimented with the classic handstand shot!
Fun Fact #2 – Yosemite is home of North Americas largest waterfall which ranks 3rd in the world!
Today’s play time will be ascending up an angled rock while flexing, stretching, and “hand jamming” our way to the top! I felt pretty cool walking with all the gear.
Fun fact #3 – El Capitan is the largest granite block in the world!
We let the professionals find the right rock to set up and give us a quick but detailed lesson on the sport they love so much.
I’m chalked up and all safety is cleared. Ready, set…Climb!
What goes up… has to walk backwards down? All righty, here I go!
Now we get shown how it’s done!
For all of the avid climbers out there… This photo’s for you!
What an exhilarating start for my first visit to Yosemite! Tomorrow will bring a gorgeous hike and some water fun!
