Betty, It is just amazing that they lived to tell about this adventure, never mind shooting pictures. Your grandmother was so brave!

Thanks Barb & Regina; Barb, I really can't believe that my Grandma did some of the things that she did when she was young! Unfortunately I did not inherit that quality from her--don't I'd want to climb out on that rock the way she did!!!!
