#11 - Descending

Cloudland Canyon state park in Georgia has some serious descent - 900 feet of vertical drop from the canyon rim to the floor, with steep switchback trails and over 450 stairs.  Here is the view from the top of the canyon rim, the first of many waterfalls, cascades, rapids, and drop pools on the way to the bottom.....


...And here is the last drop on the bottom of the canyon floor where the water turns from a tumbling noisy bounce to a strong smooth current.....


....and here is me  2/3 of the way back up taking a breather.  I lied and told the kids climbing by like little spider monkeys that I didn't want to stop but our 52-week challenge was to take a selfie sitting down at an interesting place each week, so dang, but duty calls, you know.  Had to take a bout 20 shots with the 10 second delay timer to...um...you know....get a good one.....for the club.   Yeah, that's the ticket; I had to stop for the club.  Not because I was sucking wind or feeling the bursitis all the way into my hair or anything.

Nice series of pictures that definitely fulfill the theme of "Descending".
