Atlanta isn't as cool as I was hoping it to be. I walked around from 8:30 until about 2 and these are the most interesting things I saw. I would have gone to the aquarium, but I didn't want to waste 35 bones to get in. I think Cleveland is better than Atlanta...

I also think I may be a little bit color blind, it's such a pain for me to get color tones right....or close

Finally Got Outside

Finally got to climb outside on Tuesday. I ended up climbing with the 15 year old world champion climber from the British Climbing Team. That kid was tough as nails...

Rain or Snow, Munro Bagging We Go!

Well "Scottish Hillwalking" turned out to be way more than I expected. I spent Saturday Munro Bagging (Munros are summits over 3,000 feet), which doesn't sound very tough, and I wasn't expecting it to be, but wow... We started the day off in the rain, and then had to cross a river, which immediately filled up my boots with water (awesome start). Then we hiked uphill and through the woods for about an hour and a half, just to get to the hills. It was a spectacular sight that i'll never forget. Hiking was like walking on top of a wet sponge and felt great on the feet but just kept my boots from drying. The weather changed every 10 minutes from sunny, to rain, to heavy wind, to freezing cold. The hikes were steep and the peaks were covered in heavy clouds, and I thought I made it to the top about 9 different times, only to see another giant hill in front of me. The view from the top was amazing and vast. I saw a couple rainbows too. But after the 3 mountains in climbed and 10 miles over hiking up and down them in 12 hours, I was completely exhausted. i woke up this morning at 1pm and my whole body hurt. It was a great trip though.
