Missy Rapelling, originally uploaded by LeggNet.

My family and I spent the day in the Wasatch mountain range enjoying various outdoor activities. Days like this remind me why I love living here so much.

Featured here is a capture of my oldest daughter Elisabeth rapelling down a rock face in Big Cottonwood Canyon. She has previously climbed and rapelled on man-made climbing walls, but this was her first time rapelling “in the wild”. I’m definately biased as a proud parent, but I must say that she did quite well (as did her sister Sarah)!
