And in our newest edition of Clinging to Trees- may I present one stunning view from St. Peter's Dome!! Beyond that rock you see behind me is apparently another landing, and reportedly there is an overhang, but you know I will never get close enough to see it! And kids, let me tell you, that is not much of a tree to cling to. I went out as far as that middle dip in the rock and that was it. My toes were pressed down inside those hiking boots I think there are permanent indents in the insoles.
Of course the Mad-English teacher was all over the place- looking over the edge, walking on the paths to each side that I could not make myself go over to..... he's a brave, brave guy. Maybe next time I go I'll try those paths.... maybe.
Yeah, and it was amazing, because it was actually somewhat easier on me than last fall when I was up there. So petrified or not, it was a great view and a great hike! Photos to come!
A pretty joyful way to spend a Saturday morning, let me tell you!
