Scrambling at Castle Rock!! 14 Nov. 2007

Monday being Veteran’s Day, my kids had time off from school. We decided to go to Castle Rock, in the Santa Cruz Mountains. It’s a short drive from where we live, but one you’re up there you feel like you’re miles away from Silicon Valley. Getting a signal with the GPS unit was a bit tricky in the mountains, but I got lots of shots of my kids scrambling on some fairly substantial boulders. My youngest crawled into a cave and got his leg firmly lodged in between two rocks. It was a bit like getting a sofa stuck in the stair well when you’re trying to move. It get's stuck, but you have no idea how. I had to crawl in through the back of the cave entrance and then spend about 5 minutes figuring out how to reposition his leg to get it out of the jam. The poor kid was in tears and I was close to calling the fire department, but we got him un-jammed. No one fell off any big rocks, and the scrapes we walked away with were about what you would expect from a day of scrambling. All in all, a day well spe n t .
