Let me up there! by annbumbly
Alas, it wasn't meant to be
Driving home, I passed this group of kids enjoying our incredible February weather (58º that day) on top of a huge boulder. Well, almost everyone...
I circled back around and the little girl still on the ground, no matter how hard she tried simply couldn't climb up that rock to join her friends. No, they didn't come down to help her, at least not while I was ~spying~ on all of them, but they also didn't taunt her (if they had, yes, I would have said something).
I can't think of many things that would be nicer than to spend some time on top of a rock on a beautiful springy, but in the middle of winter day. How about you?


the robins are back!

P. S. - The blurry area in the middle of the rock is my attempt to hide the (awful!) graffiti someone thoughtlessly painted there.


  1. Reminds me of the last few hikes I've gone on where my friend and I spend most of our time hauling his 4 year and my 5 year old up and down rocks.

  2. I always have my eye on that rock, too....

  3. It was a great day to spend sitting on top of a big warm rock.

  4. I;d rather be on a warm rock than in my office ..

  5. When I was a wee bairn we had a favorite camping spot in the Cascade Mts of WA state. It had a big rock in the center much like this one. We were never allowed help to reach the top. If you couldn't climb it you needn't be up there. I was SO excited the summer I could climp to the top.

  6. Paula - what a wonderful memory! And it made me think of our trips to Colorado when we were kids and all the rocks we climbed there.

  7. Atop a rock on a warm spring-like day is a great place to be!


Thank you for taking the time to leave a thought. It's appreciated! xoabb
