Mrs. Claus is so brave! Standing on the edge of the cliff after hiking in Canyonlands!
THIS is a total lie! I am terrified . . . petrified of heights! Which kind of stinks when you love taking pictures. But kind of what also keeps you alive!
I hiked from the parking lot down to the big flat rock where people are walking in this shot. THEN Santa and S&S convinced me to go out on the ledge to get a better view. To GET out there I had to cross over a very narrow GAP between the rocks. It doesn't matter the size of the GAP . . . it matters the HEIGHT! I looked down between the GAP in these rocks and saw how high it was and FREAKED OUT! I crossed over it! My accomplishment of the vacation . . . . without realizing I have to cross back to get home!
THIS is the ledge! I get a weak-knee feeling just looking at Santa on the edge of this cliff. As you can see Santa is NOT afraid of heights at all! When I crossed the "gap" and got over to this ledge . . . I wasn't as brave as Santa. I was up against the rock at the far right of this picture holding on. Not even as far out as the lady in the red shirt is . . . . because it is STRAIGHT DOWN . . . . no railing, no fence . . . . my feet are numb just typing the words and I am sitting at my desk on terra firma!
By the time I got back across the ledge I was shaking all over. But I did it! Faced one of my biggest fears! Doesn't mean my fear is conquered by any stretch of the imagination . . . but facing your fears is the first step!
Santa trying to show me how it's NOT scary . . . . not working btw! If you have a fear of heights you understand where I am coming from, and if you don't, well it just sounds silly!
Regardless of how I felt Canyonlands was amazing!
I suggest you go (even if you are terrified of heights) as you may never see anything else like it!
We had a great time hiking all over Canyonlands! I liked the overlooks with fences a lot more. LOL!
Well, now he's just showing off!
