Rocks State Park is popular with rock climbers. I watched this guy rappel down the rock face barefoot. Does he have grit or is he just crazy? Those are his shoes swinging behind him.
This girl has just started her climb at the Rocks. I sharpened the edges to make the rocks look grittier.
After I checked into my hotel in Québec City, I went outside the see the nearby sunken garden. What should be in the center of it but a 1½ times life size statue of Jeanne d’Arc on her horse. She was a girl with True Grit.
