A Very Tall Tale

He didn’t actually climb up the steep left side, that was an aborted climb down.

We went for a hike next to my office yesterday. The plan was to show Zane the trail I’d been making last Fall, but the pull of the rocks was too much and he only made it two-thireds of the way before breaking off to boulder. At one point, perched atop a high rock and starting to crawl out on a dead tree trunk hanging out over space he said, “Follow me!” I replied with, “Don’t you think that’s a little dangerous?” Ever the fearless explore he confided, “Yes, but not for me.”
