I debated whether to share this picture because it's a mixed emotion picture....one of those where you "had to be there" and you love the 'memory' but you hate the actual picture. You know that kind, right?
So this picture was taken up near the observatory that I mentioned in the previous post and hubby says to me, "Go right over there and stand near the edge and I'll take your picture." For those who might not think this is a big deal - I don't do well with "edges" that have a steep drop off. I'm paranoid about losing my footing and falling to my death.
I was as careful as can be getting over to this spot, which we felt would be a perfect picture spot with the clouds in the background and the rock, etc......He promised me he would come over there and help me get back.
He just stood there and laughed at me and kept saying, "dont fall...."
I started laughing at myself and before I knew it, I was doubled over in hysterical laughter. Other visitors were looking at us and one even asked what was so funny. We couldn't stop laughing to tell them and we knew they wouldn't understand anyway.
Why do I hate the picture? Because it makes my ass look fat. That's why.
Obviously I refused to trust him in any other high elevation places that did not have a building to hold on to...so once we stopped laughing enough to walk - I had him take the picture at the lookout point.
Then we had a woman from Ohio (who we later found out had family that lived within an hour of our home) take our picture together.
Then it was time to head back down through the clouds.....
