There's a rock wall in the parking lot ...

New Berlin

A photographer really can't go wrong when a bright blue sky is your background.

I spent some time today at Holy Apostles School, New Berlin, where students and staff participated in High Interest Day. Activities included football, knitting, theater, bubble-blowing, fencing, French cooking, science experiments, and, of course, a rock wall.

Adventure Rock, located in Pewaukee, provided the climbing wall. These kids zipped up the wall faster than I could lift my camera. I tried rock climbing a couple times when I was living down in Australia, several years back. I think what made me check the sport off my list as a potential passion was when the instructor told us a horror story about forgetting to tie the rope to the stump at the top of the cliff and ... well ... gravity isn't very forgiving to forgetfulness.
