High Rocks

Sunday I went hiking with friends. There are several good state parks close to where we live. This one, High Rocks, is famous for lots of cliff faces people climb. When we arrived, two other guys with lots of climbing gear were getting ready in the parking lot. Some of the rocks also have climbers clips hammered in to them from the park service for people to use so they can get up the cliffs safely.

We hiked up and down those rocks on the left. That’s part of the trail.

There’s a famous guy who lives either in the park borders or just next to it and can walk right into it. He’s generally known as Naked Man because he tends to just run around the park buck naked. Several years ago we talked to him on a hike. He wasn’t naked then, but he was fun to talk to. I don’t remember, but my friend in the yellow shirt in these photos said apparently I got into a heated discussion about cameras with Naked Man. I’d totally forgotten about it and laughed about it because I really don’t take too many photos anymore, so I’m the last person who should be judgmental about cameras.

We had perfect hiking weather and afterwards went out for ice cream at a local dairy farm. We can walk to the back of the store and see the farm itself and the cows that provide the milk for the treats we were eating.
