We'd heard there would be a group out at Homestead for Christmas.. little did we know it was going to be such an organized event!

We got out to Bonetown and spent the afternoon there, working on various climbs. My favorite out there is called Milk Bone, but I unfortunately was under restrictions for this trip so couldn't climb it. The others had fun climbing on it, like a long boulder problem. After doing a few routes there, we went back to camp, where JB set up some Christmas lights in the garbage tree. It actually turned out looking pretty cool, with all the metal junk in the tree acting as ornaments.

Christmas day, we ventured out to Slate Nation, and then Tufa City to work on some projects. This was my first time at Tufa City, so seeing all the cool tufas was fun and different! They're basically long vertical columns, and nothing like anything I've ever climbed on. Spent the day in the sun out there, and then hiked all the way back to camp for Christmas dinner. Christmas dinner turned out to be two full turkeys, yams, spinach-strawberry-pecan salad, and several other eats and treats. Later on in the night, Brent showed up with some really delicious apple pie (vodka) cider, and some fudge -- so good!

Janelle and I had to head out at that point and meet up with Jameson for our next adventure. We were bummed we couldn't stay longer, but really glad we got to share that special experience with so many people. One of the best Christmases I've had!
