Rock Climbing & Rappelling 2day!!

After waiting out the rain yesterday we returned back to Baby Falls for an amazing time... the group can't get enough waterfall sliding, cliff jumping & exploring. Afterwards we headed back to camp and enjoyed a delicious dinner of chicken fetticine alfredo. During the campfire time we relived the highlights of the day then watched Finding Nemo on a big bed sheet with a movie projector... it was a good day with a lot of fun people... see pics of Baby Falls

Today we got up at 5.30am to head to our rock climbing spot. After the drive we had a long uphill strenuous hike to the rock faces. The group did great on the 3 climbing routes & 1 rappel station we set up on the mountain. We saw several people encounter & overcome fears as they rappelled down nearly 8 stories and climbed up 7 story routes. We are thanking God for the incredible weather we've had all day... it was perfect for all we were doing. We will have some climbing & rappelling pics uploaded in the next couple of days.

Right now we are heading back to camp for a nice meal, (portable) warm showers (or swimsuit showers in the waterfalls), a campfire, and another outdoor movie :). Tomorrow is a full day of H2O fun... bridge jumping, cliff jumping, & waterfalls, as well as some travels to beautiful overlooks on the Cherohala Skyway. Thanks for all the prayers!!! More updates to come :)
