Distractions from the South East / by Tara Kerzhner

I know I know, these aren't #moonboard photos. You're probably feeling confused by this. Maybe you're sitting down, reading this on your laptop while clutching your iPhone in an attempt to study that benchmark v9 you failed on last night.

Alas, all I have for you is photos of outside rock climbing. A simple distraction from the daily realization that the sky is falling, and behind the ceiling of broken clouds, is a giant manchild who looks like an expired cheeto. 

So here you have some photos from nature, in the South Eastern United States. The best bouldering this side of the Mississippi.

The SE has the prettiest features in all the land. If you don't like it, you probably don't like rock climbing.

And it was a lovely day of dancing with shadows. Isn't that nice?

I'm just going to put this iphone picture of Kim here. Because...well because I heart her. I wish I could put her in my pocket and take her everywhere.
