On Alicia and my hike around the Solitude/Twin Lakes Loop, Quinn found some boulders to climb on and it turns out he's a natural. He was complaining about being tired but we knew he was faking it when we couldn't get him to stop climbing the rocks. He must have gone up and down each one a dozen times on each side. I took these pictures (while still spotting him of course) so that someday when he's a pro-climber, sponsored by all the coolest outdoor/gear brands and they're making cool videos of him climbing famous routes all over the world, he can show them off as proof and say he's been climbing since he was four. Seriously, I think he has better technique than I do. Someone get this kid some climbing shoes! (...and his brother too, but sadly he wasn't there that day.)
Quinn wanted to jump off but the boulder was taller than me so he asked me, "If I jump off and get hurt, then will you catch me?"
The next boulder we found was better because he could get down himself.
"There's plenty of money out there. They print more every day. But this ticket, there's only five of them in the whole world, and that's all there's ever going to be. Only a dummy would give this up for something as common as money. Are you a dummy?" -Grandpa George
"Be a half-assed crusader, a part-time fanatic. Don’t worry to much about the fate of the world. Saving the world is only a hobby. Get out there and enjoy the world, your girlfriend, your boyfriend, husbands, wives; climb mountains, run rivers, get drunk, do whatever you want to do while you can, before it’s too late." –Edward Abbey
Life is hard? True- but let's love it anyhow, though it breaks every bone in our bodies. -Edward Abbey
