So, if you didn't already know from my last Father's Day post, I have the coolest Dad! He took me rock climbing this weekend in West Virginia and it was a blast! Probably one of the most terrifying things I've done, but definitely something I want to do again!
This was at the very beginning of our climb. I was always testing my equipment to remind myself that I was securely attached to that via ferrata.
This was my "holy crap Dad I'm going to kill you for taking me on this trip look." We were going smooth until we turned around a corner and there was NOTHING! I didn't realize just how high we were until that moment. My palms still get sweaty thinking about it...
This was the bridge! It was definitely scary, but not unbearable. You can't tell but the pieces of wood are actually about a foot apart and only a couple inches wide.
Our tour guide Tony was awesome!!
After hours of climbing, the view was totally worth it. West Virginia is beautiful!
Before making the trip home we found a swimming hole. It was so refreshing and so pretty!
I'm so glad I got to go on another adventure before I leave for the Philippines!! It was such a neat day to be able to really conquer my fears and do things I wasn't sure I could do. The whole time I kept thinking about my mission. Even though it's going to be terrifying and I'll be doing things I never knew I could do, it will be such a sweet and rewarding experience. Just as I was really relying on my equipment, I'll have Jesus Christ to back me up the every step of the way (:
Life is good when I'm rock climbing with Dad!
