Then we hit the road. Bob had to go up a day early to help set up, so I drove up with my parents, and my brother's family followed in the car behind.
My brother wanted to stop along the way to rock climb in the City of Rocks. It so reminded me of the movie Tremors. So we stopped in town to find a map of the climbs and got in touch with our pioneer roots in honor of Pioneer Day. :)
Then we climbed.
Even the kids did a little bouldering.
Since I was holding the camera, there are no shots of me climbing. But let me tell you, I was sore the next day, so I know it happened. But here is proof I was there.
