A Bouldering Trifecta

This spring, David took two weeks off from work to boulder in Bishop, California. Christine flew down to meet him during her spring break from school. David's two weeks turned into four due to a lack of available work back at home. Chasing cooler temps, David traveled from Bishop to Joe's Valley, Utah to Castle Rocks State Park, Idaho. Christine was lucky enough to follow to Joe's for five days, and even snuck in a weekend trip to Idaho to meet up with David and friends at the end of their trip. Once again, this trip was made a lot more fun by the company of great friends.

David gets tunnel vision after 15 hours of driving from Montana to Bishop.
David displays the results of people using pallets as firewood. Something to think about.

Good to see Grandma and Grandpa again.

When the temps soared above 70 degrees F, we decided to leave California to recoup the rest of our trip in Joe's Valley.

On the way home, Alex, Jon and David decided to check out Castle Rocks for the first time. Christine drove down from Montana for the weekend to meet them.
