Let's start this post off right- nice and cheesy.
A song to go along with the post. Because the titles match....
Most of my Memorial Day was spent sitting at home, or sitting at Sarah's house while her husband fixed my windshield (which was great! THANK YOU guys again for not only fixing my windshield, but feeding me too. haha!). But after that, I decided it was time to get outside and enjoy the day off. So my roommate, Katie and I headed out for a hike. But this was no ordinary hike... I did something I never thought I would do. Something I was terrified of, but something I *coughsecretlycough* wish I could do.
I rock climbed.
Ok. So not LEGIT rock climbing. Maybe more of bouldering?
This place is stunning. Seriously takes my breath away.
As we drove into the park, we picked our trail and started hiking. We soon lost the trail (we weren't worried, it'd be pretty hard to get lost), so we had to make our own. As we walked we noticed a rock formation that seemed to have a cave on it. We decided to hike up to the cave, check it out, that would be that. But no, after reaching the cave we decided to go on... all the way to the top.
You have to remember that I am a big baby with things like this and I freak out. Plus, I'm small... like, really small. So this was kind of a big deal for me... AND this picture doesn't do it justice... I promise it's bigger in person...
This was inside the cave!
A view from the top.
Not only did I make it to the top, but I made it with my purse. Yup- my purse. Next time, I'll do it in stilettos.
We climbed down the back side of the formation and found some awesome narrows!
It was SUCH an amazing hike and I was so proud of myself. I didn't chicken out once. Woohoo! Progress... progress.
On the way home, we took a detour and found a little ice cream shop on the side of the road called "The Icebox". It was so cute, we couldn't help but stop. After all, we had earned it.
Not only was it the cutest little shop ever, but it had a spectacular view with tables we could sit at outside to enjoy it.
This will be a new tradition for us. Every time we go hiking in that park- we will end it with ice cream at The Icebox. Good times!
