Danielle: Me posing on the great rock formations. Unfortunately this picture lacks perspective, but I'm really near the edge of a very high cliff. How far down would you say it is Tad???

Tad: Yeah, this picture doesn't do Danielle's perch justice. Just to the left of the rock Danielle is sitting on the cliff drops away for a good 100 feet to the talus slope below. This spot we found to sit out of the wind was actually very cool. The blocks on the right blocked the wind, and there was about a ten foot wide shelf of rock before the cliff dropped away. Danielle is sitting on that shelf.

Check out the shadow in the top right corner of the picture. The next picture is of me lying on the horizontal shelf at the bottom of the shadow.
