Hard Work 188/365

On our visit to Garden of the Gods I came upon two men at the bottom of one of the rock formations. They had all kinds of climbing gear on getting ready to scale the rock and I wished them luck on their climb. I'm not a fan of heights so that is one adventure I wouldn't be participating in. They laughed and honestly seemed a bit unsure of themselves in which I assured them that from my perspective they looked well prepared.

As we made our way around Garden of the Gods (which is aptly named) I saw them scaling the rock and had to get a picture. I wish I could have shared it with them.

I was hoping to capture the sense of scale here...

Awesome. It's cool to see the image from top to bottom - the second climber below is kind of nice surprise and perfectly composed! blush
