My climbing shoes have officially seen better days.
Luckily my awesome family got me a new pair of climbing shoes for Christmas, and the last couple of weeks have been super nice out, so Joaquin and I have been toe jamming, ringlocking, and thumbstacking our way up some routes at The Overlook. So good... and I look so fresh in the new shoes, which is important for helping me climb well because you have to look good to climb good.
I have been playing around with my Macro Lens a bit, too. Check this shot out (the first is a cropped zoom of the second shot. Notice the crop - you can see this feature right underneath the large flower on the second shot. CRAZY detail, huh!?)
This past weekend, we got another big snow. Furthermore, the town turned San Francisco Street (the main street downtown) into a snowboard course and had a big competition. Cam - John's son - competed. This kid is 8-years old. He asked me what tricks I could do on my snowboard. I told him "crashing."
The rest of the events were impressive as well - everything from backflips to crazy spins and stuff (that is a technical term) were thrown on San Francisco street. It was cool.
