Ballancing Rocks

Inspired by a friend and having some time on my hands on the north shore I try my hand at balancing rocks. It's very challenging and quit entertaining. I only invested about an hour or so before my wife ask me to 'move along'

Rock Climbing Boulder

My buddy Brad and I drove out to Boulder CO. to do some rock climbing. We climbed the Flat Irons as well as some less obvious formations. Climbing and photography is difficult so I don't have much but a flew quick shots.

Summit Team!

Valley shot

It's friction feet and spooky. About 140 feet high

A Rare Minnesota Skin Dive

Late September on Tonka we forget lightweight under-garments and it's rocket hot out. We only have drysuits so suiting up means we roast until getting into the 84 degree water and even then with only heavy fleece suits under our drysuit, we expect to stew in out suits. We forgo the suits entirely and go 'skins'. We only have our street cloths but they will do just fine.
