Rock Climbing

26 Feb

Rock climbing on SugarloafPeople have been doing strange things on my trails lately.

Awhile back someone rappelled down the side of my rock called Sugarloaf.

Today someone else is climbing right up it.

You’d think they’d want to coordinate with each other.

I mean, which is it – up or down?

No one seems to be able to make up their minds.


Personally, I think the trail on the back of Sugarloaf is much easier, but I guess these people didn’t want to walk that far.

I guess this way is a lot shorter.

And look, she’s almost at the top.

But as soon as the first person made it up, her friend decided she’d give it a try.

I know you have to look kind of hard, but there’s a pink shirt in the middle of the picture.

Anyway, I’ve been thinking…

There must be something to this climbing thing.

It looks like fun.

Maybe I should try it.

But I think I should start out on something a little easier.

Bongo climbing onto a rock

How’s this?

I’m almost to the top.

    That is the best idea Bongo start at the bottom and work upwards

    You may need to befriend a mountain goat and train with him. Otherwise I would stick to the trails!

      Will and Eko, I guess I’m going to have to stick to the trails because I’ve never seen a mountain goat around here.

    Good Job Bongo.

    I’m scared of heights / falling ( I have enough trouble falling with two feet planted on the ground ), so you won’t find me climbing the mountain. I’ll walk the trails with you ok.

      Kimberly, that sounds like a great idea. We can walk the trails together.

      Thanks Lily and Edward. I think I need a ladder for the next step though.

      Marina, that sounds like fun. I might finally get to play in snow if I go to Mt. Everest.

    Ha! Good job, B. You are halfway to Sugarloaf! I practice climbing on the mountains of plowed snow in my neighborhood. It’s actually more snirt than snow. (snirt = snow + dirt) But still fun.

    Love and licks,

      Cupcake, I wish I had some mountains of snirt to climb here. That sounds like fun.

      Fredrieka, pretty soon I’ll be dragging my person up the hill.

    How cool Bongo! I’m sure that if you continue it little by little, you’ll be able to be climbing up that Sugarloaf easily!

      Kevin, I’ll keep working on it – but I know a secret way up Sugarloaf. It’s much easier.

    You are doing good sweet Bongo you will be at the top before you know it if you just keep climbing. Those real high places are scary to us but we know you can do it. Hugs and nose kisses

      Chancy and Mumsy, I’m climbing higher and higher. I’ll get there one of these days – if I don’t get out of breath first. Hugs and nose kisses back to you.

    I don’t think a leash is the same as a rope – plus don’t forget your poor person on the other end there Bongo.

      Diane, I guess I could drag my person up the hill with my leash.
