Maple Canyon
« on: January 06, 2008, 04:07:56 PM »
After reading a post on here about Maple Canyon, my family and I decided to go exploring.  Nifty little hike and my wife and daughter had a blast!  My daughter got to climb some boulders and my wife got to take some pics!

Thank you! I'll be sure to tell her. Truth is, that's what she is trying to do, but that step from serious hobbyist to getting paid is big.

Yeah, homero, she is not "our" wife!  :icon_rolleyes:

She has a Canon 5D camera so she has the right camera for going pro.

It's really fun for kiddoes.  Short hike into the canyon and then the climb up the canyon is fairly easy with several boulders for them to climb.  Although, I would think that it would be pretty snakey during warmer times.
