We find ourselves, this first day of the new year, rock climbing in Red Rocks Canyon. Last year’s biggest event for us was getting hitched, but our greatest moments are our small, crazy ones - planned and spontaneous. We’re working on embracing “flying-by-the-seat-of-our-pants” and being crazy! Forever!! We want to follow our hearts and God. He wants us to have an abundant and whole life, and we’re chasing it! Today, we’re relaxing on Fremont Street at the Container Park. It’s a great place to take kids (if you do happen to take them to Vegas!). There’s a green space, some fun restaurants and shops, and it’s much more family-friendly than the rest of what we have seen in the city of Vegas.
To back up a bit, when we first arrived and were overwhelmed by the craziness of the Vegas Strip on the first day, we swore up and down that we’d never take kids to Vegas; then we went to Red Rocks. With its handy location, short hikes, warm weather, interesting rock features, and numerous caves, boulders, and cliffs, it’s the perfect place for kids! We loved watching the families hang out and hike with their kids while we rested from our climbs; There was so much joy and playfulness around us. At one point Silvain had a cheering squad while he tried to muscle his way up a climb; they definitely got a good show when he fell from above his bolt, and Michelle went flying 10 feet in the air!
Now, we’re half-way through our trip, have experienced a little bit of everything, and are ready for more climbing, more adventure, and probably a lot more interesting people watching.
Who We Are
Hi! We're Michelle and Silvain: a married, Christian couple that's always seeking to learn, explore, and take on new challenges. Our adventures take us up mountains, down trails, and to faraway places. Follow us as we live, love, and are crazy! Forever!!
