Sierra Nevada Adventure with Owsley Clan
Okay so Jared's idea of a "retreat" and my idea of a retreat are not the same. I soaked in a nice hot bath. He jumped into a freezing glacial lake at close to 10,000 feet elevation. I'll add a video, just for proof. Notice everyone else is wearing jackets and hats. My husband is the one wearing swim trunks jumping off the rock!!! You can't miss his gorgeous farmer tan!
From Left to Right- Trevor Owsley, Jared McBride, KC Owsley above 11,000 feet elevation.
(Notice Trevor holding on for dear life! KC is pretending to be "cool" for the photo. And Jared is ready to keep climbing!)
Yes, this is my husband doing Yoga in Rock Climbing Shoes, a top a Sierra Minaret
Here is Adam pointing to the Minaret. Yes, siree, the boys climbed to the tippy top. This is their idea of a fun adventure. What is so wrong with just getting a massage? I mean which would you choose... climb a jagged cliff up to 12,000 feet elevation, or get a massage???
I think men and women are suppose to be different. If for nothing else, so that we can miss each other terribly--even while we are both enjoying ourselves immensely!
To be completely honest, if I didn't have to camp without restroom facilities, the hiking and photography looks to be out of this world! I've got to learn to hike and take pictures faster, so I can make it back before dark.
Check out the videos below for more graphic details.
We would also like to thank KC for sharing his pictures and video of Jared's retreat!!! THANK YOU!!!!
