White Rocks provides perfect autumn camp and climb

12 Sep

The boys had been eyeing that rock all day. To my climbing-wired sons, the 300-foot massif that hulked over our little campsite in the Cedar Mountains proved irresistible. I had informed Bridger and Weston — then ages 4 and 3, respectively — that they would have to wait until daylight, when I could strap their baby brother onto my back and help them climb it safely.

But the scattered campfire light dancing across its rounded surfaces was just too much. They waited until their brother spit Spaghettios all over the camp chair, then they made their move.

    Watching children learn about the world is always a treat. I think it’s great you’re introducing your kids to the outdoors and nurturing their curiosity.

    That does look like kind of a steep climb. I bet the boys practically ran up there.

    It’s my hobby, climbing the mountains, and you have discussed a great idea, how to climb. It’s right that, white rocks are perfect in autumn camp and climb, because these mountains aren’t slippery. I advise all those people who haven’t enjoyed climbing mountains, participate once in this activity.
