Boulder Sunday--Tonto Natural Bridge State Park, AZ

#BoulderSunday created by @shasta

Years ago during spring break my kids and I went to Arizona looking for warm weather and hoping to leave the Wisconsin winter behind. One of the memorable things we did while we were there was go rock hopping in Pine Creek in Tonto Natural Bridge State Park, near Payson, AZ.



There was a lot of scrambling involved and I must admit to a time or two when one of the kids would have to come back and offer me a hand to hop from one boulder to the next. There were also places where the rocks were wet and slippery!


And plenty of really big boulders.


There were waterfalls and caves all along the way.




I was pretty proud of myself for climbing and jumping from boulder to boulder! It is one of those accomplishments that I can look back at and say, 'I did that'!

Thanks so very much!

Great photos and great memories I'm sure. Love the water color in that first shot.

There are so many amazing places in AZ, aren't there?

The first photo is too beautiful. It makes me so happy that you and the guys enjoyed it so much and were close to nature. You are the one that appears in the last photo?

That's me, still walking and climbing!

And creating special memories with the guys. You look great in that photo😊

Younger and healthier!

It is perfect that you have taken advantage of that health and youth to travel to beautiful places

It has been a great life! I have absolutely no regrets!

That is about reaching your age and not regret anything. And know that you have enjoyed life so much

Every minute! (almost) 😉

Again I see such wonderful natural beauty over the priceless gift of God. My really really enjoy the natural landscape that is so amazing. I always want to be there
Thanks for this @melinda010100

You would love touring the southwestern part of the United States. There is so much to see there.

What a cool trip! My kids would both love to go on a family trip like that.

This was totally impromptu! We stopped at the park and went into the Welcome Center, and one of the women working behind the desk suggested that we go on a hike was long as we were there. When she mentioned Rock Hopping to my kids they were in!

you should be proud of yourself sounds pretty tricky in places but you did it and got these great shots to share with us

Looking back, I think my MS was causing balance issues even then, but I wasn't diagnosed until years later when I started falling down frequently! It is a great memory to have with my kids!

Yes as we get older I think memories become more special for us :)

They do indeed!

That looks like a strenuous activity. I am already tired, looking at the photos. :-)

Haha! Certainly not something I could do today!
