Celebrating an old traditional

Fathers and Sons outings are a great old tradition. As I was reminiscing with Kel over old times and trying to remember when the last time we went, we finally concluded that it might have been almost 20 years ago. Kelvin tried to make me feel bad and guilty till I reminded him that we probably missed all those outings because we played soccer 52 weekends a year for about 5 years.

Either way, this was our trip up to "the Rim." On the way back to the highway, we found this view point that helps put that whole rim thing in perspective, because we were standing on the very edge of the rim - even the rim of the rim. Enjoy the pictures and the great landscape. Kelvin and I are hoping to go up again next year and maybe add Payton and David and Will.

That looks great! I'm more than a little jealous. When will the next father-daughter outing be?

Maybe we can do something in July.:)

I think I took the more dramatic pictures of the two of us. I captured how much that slab stuck out over the edge of the rim. I also dared to go closer to the edge. The wind was blowing about 20 miles an hour straight up, so it was inflating my jacket to about 25 lbs psi.
