One of the places we scuttled them too was the falls of course. This photo show Nick clambering up to the top to get some photos of the upper falls and pools. I was a little concerned when he ventured close to the slippery falls, but Riah said not to worry he was very outdoorsy and used to such activities. Here is a photo that Nick took from the top. Right before he fell.......
I missed seeing him fall, but my son tells me he started to slip, waved his hands around a little to try and catch his balance. Realizing he was going down, he quickly turned around in mid air and slid down the waterfall gracefully. He came out smiling so I guess all is well. Except his camera.
It was wonderful having them visit and we sure hope others in the family come to call as well. So often in life, you slowly get disconnected from extended family and it's always fun to get back together. We hadn't seen Nick since he was about 18, now he is 24 and a fire fighter and soon to be a married man as well.
On another note, the colt is giving his mama a run for her money! She doesn't want him to go near the rest of the herd, but he is quite the determined little fellow. She does approve of us humans though and she will herd him back to us time and again. He thinks we are pretty interesting and we love petting him, but I think he might be a rebel at heart, because whenever his mom goes to contently graze he makes a wild dash to the others!
