Still catching up here on the Lloyd Climbing Blog, and today I'll be recapping our experience over the Memorial Day Weekend. The forecast called for a lot of rain, and I had a full day of school work to do. Based on forecasts, I decided that I'd work on Saturday, and we'd climb on Sunday and Monday in Cody, where it was supposed to be drier.
While I sat working all Saturday, Instagrams kept popping up from the Rock Shop. It turned out to be a good day up there, despite the rainy forecast, and we had missed it. But it was too late, we just had to stick with our original plan. On Sunday morning it was raining steadily in Lander. Ashley mentioned that she was worried about rock fall in Wind River Canyon after so much rain. I reassured her that it would be fine. But when we drove through the canyon, I was dodging some grapefruit sized rocks that were sitting in the road. It was sketchy enough that at the end of the canyon I gave Ashley a celebratory fist bump. The rain was still falling when we got to Cody. So we just spent the afternoon at the Rec. Center, checked into the hotel, and went out for dinner.
But Monday morning was beautiful! Partly cloudy, 60 degrees, and no wind. We were in just the right place, at just the right time.
That left the morning to fill, so we got up early and went bouldering at the Highway Boulders. We started on the Cornflakes Boulder.
