Mid-October finds me longing for trees decked out in Autumn splendor. Here in Northern California, as the nights get cooler and the day time temps hover in the upper 70s, the leaves have a couple more weeks to go before we see significant color changes.
For now, as I post for Sunday Trees hosted by Becca at “On Dragonfly Wings with Buttercup Tea,” I will have to settle for some photos of leisure and play time in the trees.
Last weekend, I had arranged for one of my recreation classes to participate in the campus Peak Adventures Ropes course. Facing their fears, they embraced their opportunity to climb up trees over 40 feet in the air to a platform, rope or pole from which to execute the challenge.
In spite of them being harnessed in and belayed by professional staff, students reported the lasting affects of the adrenaline rush of walking across a wobbly rope while looking down on fellow well-wishers.
I can’t wait to read their reaction papers!
I am also including these for the Weekly Photo Challenge Scale! Please feel free to participate in these photo challenges!
What did you do this weekend?
