The past three weeks of my life have been full of fun with friends and family and a lot of traveling. If I don’t see the Denver International Airport for the next six months, that would be okay with me! Anyway, I had the day off today, thanks to the federal government, and while normally I would use a day off to go skiing, I kind of wanted to stick around Denver and have a chill day. Plus, I skied three days last week, and I know the snow is only mediocre at best right now. Naturally my idea of a low-key day in Denver involved bouldering with my friend Staci.
I really just can’t stay away from extreme sports with a high learning curve. I went rock climbing with a group of my friends last spring, but I had not done any rock climbing since that time. Luckily, I warned Staci that she was going to be dealing with a beginner, and she was very patient. The day was gorgeous, and I think we were both just happy to be outside enjoying the weather. Although the skier in me could only half enjoy the weather, as I am still hoping for some serious snowstorms soon.
Not making it look easy
I had a lot of fun bouldering, and I really just concentrated on being comfortable on the rocks. Staci and I definitely have plans to hit some rock climbing gyms soon. Although to be honest, I hope I don’t do any rock climbing for the next few months. It’s ski season!
