Sentimental Snapshots: Roll Your Own (Boulders)

It’s been a while since I’ve done a Sentimental Snapshots post, and when I came across this picture, it made me laugh and brought back so many happy memories that I had to use it. It was taken in August of 2008 when Steve and I flew north for the summer to Squamish, British Columbia in an attempt to escape the sweltering heat and humidity of the Southeast. Squamish is a special place for us because its where we first learned to climb outdoors, on a “rest day” from a Whistler ski trip in March of 2006. We spent that first day with a guide frolicking around on 40 foot 5.6 topropes in the shadow of the gigantic monolith called the Chief.  So two years later we came back to Squamish, this time as experienced climbers ready to tackle the Chief in all of its granite glory.  You can read about those adventures here.  I took this photo towards the end of our trip – we’d spent the morning getting our climb on at Murrin Park, and were taking the afternoon off to do some hiking sans heavy packs.  About halfway up the trail, we spotted this boulder, where the photo-opp was too tempting to pass up…

Name that caption...

As you know I usually try to have some sort of thought-provoking life application type question at the end of these snapshot posts to promote discussion, but I couldn’t really come up with anything.  Then I realized that sometimes photos/memories/experiences are just there to make us smile, and they don’t have to go any deeper than that.  So instead of a question, how about a game of “Name that Caption?”  Add your best caption idea in the comments section, and we’ll all get a good laugh.  Whoever has the best caption will get props in the next Sentimental Snapshots.
