Pinnacles Round 2 (aka Photography Attempts Post Due to Brain Fart)

Good grief . . . It's been almost a week since I posted. AND visited your lovely blogs!
GASP!!!
Shame on me.
Seriously.

Sometimes, time just runs away from you. Honestly, I can't remember what I did this week. I really can't.
I was sick, and then . . . then what? I have no idea. Does that make me sound like I was black-out drunk or lost time in an opium den? Because, I swear to you on my honor and Pipkin's dinner that was so NOT the case. Nope. Not even a little.
I'm not nearly that exhilaratingly scandalous.
Seriously, for me, scandalous is wearing high heels and sneaking my dog bits of corn chips.
We're not high on excitement over here . . .
Though it is Brewfest on World of Warcraft--that's exciting, right? RIGHT?!?!
Oh, god, I need a life.


In other news, because I'd like to . . . Here are some pictures from our most recent Pinnacles hike (yeah, it's going to totally become a thing--we just love it).

Now, I'm going to enjoy the first batch of rain I've seen here since April. I'm not used to not having rain . . . or not having rain that's attached to a mighty thunderstorm. This could take some getting used to . . .




See that cliff? That sheer drop off in three directions?
Chris tried to get me to climb out there. I got about ten feet form the edge, and went NO. Hell could freeze over faster than I would scuttle out there with certain death on either side.
To my left: a slanted rise, no real grips. To my right: rounded stone, very smooth. CERTAIN DEATH, PEOPLE.
So he walked me back to solid ground and then hiked out to the edge alone per my mother's request for a cool picture.
He later admitted it was a bad idea because the openness, the "If I tilt to far to the left/right/forward, lose my footing even a little, I WILL fall" made him dizzy.
So there will be no more of that, please and thank you.





 

So, yeah, you should totally visit Pinnacles.
I can't wait until it's springtime and things start blooming. It will be GORGEOUS.


Have an awesome weekend, loves!

  1. So pretty! You know I already agree with you on the how-have-I-gone-so-long-without-reading-any-blogs thing, so I just wasn't to say I totally get you with the high heels thing. That's scandalous for me, too. ;)

  3. It is such a cool place--you don't realize how pretty is really is until after you've left, but being there you're just kind of like, "Wow! So cool!" over and over again. There are also some caves you hike through, but my iphone didn't take great pictures in the dim light.

  4. Totally scandalous ;] I mean, really, heels are the front page kind of scandal around here.

  8. I applaud your commitment to avoiding the certain death waiting at the edge of cliffs. I would do the same.

  11. Heights just aren't my thing. I love climbing on rocks, but I prefer to do it without certain death if I slip even a little bit ....
