Where have you been?
I haven't been here.
But I am here now.
I have decided to get back into the things that I enjoy. One of them is blogging. I still take pictures that I want to blog with and yet I don't get them HERE.
So - last year when I was driving back from Salida (I think). I went by the Royal Gorge (geez, that doesn't look like I spelled it right). It so happened that there had been a fire the year before and the bridge was badly damaged. So I wasn't able to get up to the bridge or anything. But I was able to get close.
Here is a picture of the bridge from my vantage point.
Can you see the bridge way out there? There are guys working on it and getting it back up to speed. I happen to be at a park area that is VERY rustic and not easy to get to. To be frank, I am surprised that my little Cube (Lady Dye) was able to get up here. But get up here she did and decided to hike around and look at the view.
I decided to walk out a little bit and look over the edge of a cliff... yup, a cliff. Here is the view.
WHOA!! That is a long way down.
I am by myself and I realize that I am not in 'hiking shoes'.
can't keep walking on these rocks in heels.
Do you think this is easy? See that far edge? That goes straight down. Nope there is no railing or anything. I had better be more careful, right?
Ok - see what I mean? This is a whole story that no one got to see because I wasn't blogging.
And alls well that ends well, right? I am here after all. I didn't fall off the cliff or anything. But what if I never told this story? Then no one would know how crazy I am - would they?
Ah, sanity is over-rated.
