First, though, you must educate yourself by reading this.
We stopped to take a photo as we neared the tower. It is pretty impressive even from a distance.
There is a nice path circling the tower so I took a LOT of photos. Well, it looks different from different angles.
But there were some real climbers.
They are in some of these photos, I think, but they are just specks.
Jennifer and I asked each other many times, "Why? ". It just didn't seem like a good idea to me to climb on something so big and slippery looking.
It was a perfect day!
We had a delightful guest.
One thing we were aware of was that many tribes consider that area to be a holy place.
These things tied in trees represent someone's prayers. Although that isn't part of my faith tradition, I kind of liked it.
When we left the Tower, we stopped by a little gopher colony. That was when we learned Jennifer is a gifted gopher whisperer. I think she was maybe surprised to learn that as well!
I missed the photo but that little guy came right up to her shoe!
It was a good day, a very good day.
