It was a balancing act. Our intrepid, real-life rock climber loved the challenge of scaling this pile of rocks and it all started with Dad’s imagination.
Many years ago, Dad envisioned this image at the Wichita Mountains Wildlife Refuge in Oklahoma. He found an experienced rock climber in the Dallas area who agreed to scale this formation for the photo. The climber brought along several buddies who helped him stay safe with behind-the-scenes ropes and gear. Then Dad just had to get the right camera angle, action and blue, blue sky.
