A month of journeying

Jean and I have been on the road a month now and camping at City of Rocks for a week and a half. We're driving in to Salt Lake to pick up Jean's sister Tricia. Meg joined us on Saturday and we've been a great climbing team. I had my first outdoor fall on lead yesterday on Colossus and it was actually pretty mellow. Jean gave me a nice soft catch and I ended up making it up the climb. We've also done a few cool trad routes, my favorite so far is Wheat Thin which is right near where we are camping. Yesterday afternoon I found a shady spot to rest and Meg and Jean climbed a cool multipitch up Flaming Rock. Jean has been cooking up some great meals, our favorite so far is a refried bean, polenta and Gouda skillet mash with jalapeƱo and hot sauce. Yum!
