We all have to start
Somewhere, no need to look up
Feet will follow your heart

My younger son was three and our family was exploring some beautiful slot canyons outside of Palm Springs, CA. Before we made it to the canyons my son decided he was ready to climb this wall. He is ambitious and I was instantly inspired.
I love this! I have a similar shot that shows the scale of our earth. It was taken at Stinson Beach. You can see my husband to the bottom right. The photo isn’t so great. I’ve improved since then lol. https://www.dropbox.com/s/1blun0hvfsd9p8c/daverocks%20%281%29.jpg?dl=0
🙂 Yes, the scale of our Earth is rarely measurable. I tried, hard, to get the top of this rock wall in the image but it was still so much higher.
I’ll check out your image, I enjoy images like this too! Thank you!!
Wow! What a trip! I’m always ok going up, it’s the coming back down that’s the issue 😉 Great capture!
That is the challenge with my boys too, hard to get them down safely.
In this case, he never made it very high, the wall was very smooth. The slot canyons are so awesome there, that was an adventure!
Great shot! Love it! 🙂
Thank you 🙂 I really appreciate your comment.
a fantastic wall of nature!!
Thank you, Cybele. I totally agree 🙂
Wonderful! Your little boy at the bottom really does emphasise the immensity of the wall. I love that he wanted to climb it and wasn’t put off by the scale of the job. I hope he keeps that outlook! 🙂
Me too, Louise! He was so determined, still is a few years later. That rock wall was a true presence. Thank you!
