Smith Rock State Park
Happy Wednesday to you. Today I'm meeting a friend so that we can walk and catch up. On the last day of our stay in Redmond, Oregon we ventured to a State Park called Smith Rock. It was beautiful! Besides having a lovely hike, we spotted some climbers. Of course, I was drawn to them immediately.
Forgive the size of the next three photos, but I wanted you to see what we saw. This is a new addition to rock climbing(or at least new to me)called Slack lining. It reminded me of a high wire act or tight rope act at a circus. It was fascinating to watch.
The person fell, but thankfully was harnessed in.
Then he/she had to work to get back up on the line. We watched for a half an hour-riveting.
This was such a wonderful place to hike. I could have spent all day there. I loved the blue sky and clouds in the last photo.
A girlfriend's son has a slack line rigged up at her house. I'd be interested in it if I was younger.
I hope you have a day filled with joy! Noreen
