Climbing a Waterfall

You might have thought that climbing a waterfall was impossible, but you'd be wrong.  And, if you live in a climate where it drops below freezing for extended periods of time, you'd know why it is possible: waterfalls freeze!  And crazy people climb up them!  :-)   Here are some shots of our local Tinker Falls and a few people making the climb.  Enjoy!

Starting the climb. I was happy to see everyone using ropes!

Almost to the top.

Enjoying a break under the falls.

A lovely little frozen cascade.

Dirt-colored ice.

Hiking up to check for another climbing face.

They all seemed to be having a great day and it was quite fun to watch.

Cheers!
