Just a few days before we left for our North Carolina vacation, I came across this blog post from Jen at Jen's Ink Pen about her family's visit to the Elk River Falls. I knew it was something my boys would love.
The path to the falls brings you to the top. Alec and Mason just thought we were there just to look at a waterfall.
I pointed out a kid who was about to jump off the side of the rock wall just below the falls. They were all over it.
Mason went first. There's a rope to hold on to as you climb up a very steep rock wall.
Once you climb up the wall, there's a thin piece of twine to hold on to while you carefully make your way across. Looks kind of scary to me.
Alec started climbing next.
Mason made it to the jumping off spot and wasted no time.
Alec made it across and decided it best to analyze the situation before proceeding.
He let Gary go ahead of him.
After he completed his detailed analysis, he was ready to make the leap.
But it was a really great experience for my guys.
