I have made it clear that I have had a strong urge to climb on things since I was a child. With that said, it is no surprise that my son is equally as apt to climb as I am. He has demonstrated that he both has the determination and the ability to do so, and I have learned to embrace that.
The Challenge – We identified a wall on the west side that offered enough ledges to stand, while providing him a challenging route to the top.
Soaking up the reward – At such a young age, I am amazed at how he appreciates nature and the world around him. As with every climb and hike, he takes his time at the peak soaking up the beauty. He recognizes his accomplishment and takes a short minute to celebrate and reflect.
He is wise beyond his years, and I am proud to be his father.
