I looked at the wall and chose a route named “Light My Fire.” Then I climbed a route named “Maybe I’m Amazed,” followed by “Born to be Wild.” All these rock climbing routes proved to be fun and worthy.
I dug through my pack Saturday looking for my camera — I knew it was in there — but couldn’t find it. There was a mountain goat sitting high on a ledge watching the hikers go by along the Palisades Creek Trail. I found my camera later that day in a bag I’d packed but left behind. Oh well.
