desert heat & red rock climbing

IMG_1861-001 {southern Utah: St. George}

IMG_1863 In this desert city we were fighting 110 degree heat, so even getting up with the sun only bought us a few hours to climb! Before we knew it, the scorching sun was heating up that gorgeous rusty-red rock.IMG_1867-001 We took my sister-in-law (and her hubby) rock climbing in southern Utah, before heading back to SF. Since it was their first time climbing outside, I did a lot of this^^ (belaying). My hands got so dirty from our rope! Almost time for a new one.
IMG_1869 IMG_1880That red rock is so delicious, you really cannot call yourself a climber until you’ve climbed on it.
IMG_1885 Megan is tiny and strong (this mama of 3 does Crossfit several times a week!), so she pretty much muscled her way up there like she’d been a climber her whole life. It took me a whole year before I climbed like that! I really need to hit the weights again…. ever since Taiwan & Hong Kong, I’ve gotten completely out of my routine. I’ve been so busy with weddings and guests and vacay’s and packing that it still feels like I JUST BARELY got home from Asia!! I honestly don’t know where the months have gone. Hopefully after the move, I’ll be back in sync with lifting & working out. Anyway…back to packing!

hugs, hanalei
