This is my World Tues./Smith Rock

Click on the side bar and join others in there World .

Please click on photos for much bigger version as with this collage they will look much more impressive.

I have posted about Smith Rock before but this time i have posted about the trail and of Monkey Face Click to find out about climbing this rock. For those that like rock Climbing this is a very popular place. Anyway we have never completed the 2 1/2 mile hike around the mountain. Or have ever seen this side of Smith Rock. But my son and grandson went this past weekend and he is letting me borrow his photos for you all to see.
These are some great views from the top. I think they took some great photos
Here is Hudson showing off and making Grandma a bit ill thinking of him being on those rocks.
Well maybe one day we will take this hike all the way around. I hope that if you ever come to Central Oregon, take the time to check this beautiful place out, whether it be Rock climbing or just taking the hike on the trail.

Monkey face was fun and there was indeed some teeny weeny climbers on it. Climbing is not my cup of tea, though. Thanks for sharing!
