 I thought I'd show some of Pete and Chris's California trip. They started at Sequoia National Park and ended up in Carpinteria State Beach. These pictures were them climbing half dome in Yosemite  National Park. I think they were crazy to do this, but I'm REALLY afraid of heights. That's kinda why I did not go.

Half Dome

On his way up
Still going up
8 miles up almost there
Finally reached the start of the real climb
This kinda makes my stomach queasy
And this just scares me
The real climb, YIKES
The top, I was surprised at how many people were up there 
They made it
I have no words for this, I just don't understand  TERRIFIED 
About half way down 
This is what we did while they were climbing
Good Dogs
 Although I've always wanted to go to Yosemite. I must admit I was happy to have not gone on this trip. I am just to afraid of heights. We have lived in Arizona for 17 years and I have never been to the Grand Canyon, all the family has but me. To scared.



  1. A trip to Yosemite is on my bucket list. I thought it would be fun to climb to the top of Half Dome until I saw those pictures. Oh. My. Gosh. Couldn't do it....no way! I'll stay on the ground and take pictures of it. ;)

  2. What a great hike/climb. Those pictures are amazing. But what you did while they climb is one of my favorite things to do.

  3. Wow amazing pictures and thank you for sharing, yeah im too much of a chicken to do something like that!

  4. Oh my goodness - what a fun hike! I would love to do that - although I have to admit that the little bridge would make me feel a lot more brave than I normally am. I would definitely try that!

    I was at the Grand Canyon and I didn't hike it. But I am with you - it is pretty crazy how close some people get to the edge. And don't even get me started on that ledge they built where you can walk out over the canyon. That is truly frightening and I certainly wouldn't pay to do it! I don't have hair - I have feathers. Bock bock. lol

  5. Those photos are amazing! Our mom said she got dizzy just looking at them! Ha woo.

  6. Howdy All, wowza, fabulous photos but Mum is with you. Heights equal wobbly legs and booming heart. Even looking at the photos made our mum shudder. Gee she's a wimpy guts. Those photos were really amazing though. Thanks for sharing mates. No worries, and love, Stella and Rory
