|Terri climbs Red Rock Canyon!|
When Terri sent me some photos of RED Rock Canyon, I just HAD to know how she managed to climb it … But wait! I'm getting ahead of myself!!
Terri's inspiring healthy living blog, My Journey with Candida, is more than the story of how one woman dealt with a debilitating and chronic condition. It's full of great information, helpful product reviews, recipes and exercise tips.
So how does a grandmother with a hip replacement climb RED Rock Canyon? Can't wait to find out!
So welcome to RED Alert #6 – and my special guest Terri.
|Red Rock Canyon, Las Vegas|
RED: Welcome to RED Alert, Terri. And thanx for those wonderful RED photos! The rocks are almost TOO RED - if there possibly can be such a thing! Is that colour for real?
Terri: The rocks really ARE the colour they look in the photos!
RED: Where are they?
Terri: RED Rock Canyon is 15 miles west of Las Vegas, Nevada in the USA. My pictures were taken while we visited Las Vegas.
RED: I've never been to RED Rock Canyon – but it looks a little like places I've been in the Australian Outback and desert. What makes them so RED?
|Red Rock formation, Red Rock Canyon, Las Vegas|
Terri: The RED sandstone is part of the Navaho Formation, also found in the Valley of Fire, Zion National Park and throughout many parts of the southwestern United States and southern Nevada.
The contrast of RED sandstone layered through gray limestone is impressive against the tall sheer cliff faces as high as 600 metres (~1800 feet). According to Google, anyway!
RED: It must look amazing at sunset – but it's great against those clear, blue skies! What made you start blogging?
|They're not ALL red!!|
Terri: The reason I started my blog was because I could not get Doctors to listen to me. So I started writing down everything I was doing to heal. It started out for my own use, now I get daily emails from people asking for my help healing.
RED: That must be SO rewarding! What kind of blogs do you like reading?
Terri: I frequent all kinds of blogs. I think I go more for the person who writes the blog than the blog itself. I have met so many great people through blogging. Like you, I would never have met you if I didn't find your blog. You have such a great personality, plus you write like I wish I could ... that keeps me coming back. And, your pictures are super.
RED: STOP! I'm blushing …
Terri: But really, I visit such a variety of blogs that I couldn't tell you just one kind of blog I like.

RED: So what's your greatest achievement?
Terri: I climbed a mountain at RED Rock Canyon.... No really, look at the picture (top photo)!
Look … I am even wearing a red sweater!
RED: I'm SO impressed by that photo of you climbing that rock! Do you wear a lot of RED?
Terri: I wear more RED now than I ever did, not sure why that is.
RED: It must be my influence! What's your favourite colour?
Terri: Probably PINK, which is kind of RED ... Right?
RED: HHHMMMmmm... OK, I'll give you that!! So do you have lots of RED around your house?
Terri: My bathroom is the only room with red in it. RED throw rugs...
RED: Oh well, you've got to start somewhere!! Just like the healthy living journey, I guess. What are your three top tips?
|Road to Red Rock Canyon, Las Vegas|
Terri: My healthy living tips for me – I would never tell anyone how to live – are:
1. Stop eating Sugar – it is poison! LOL... I sure do miss it though!!
2. Neither Candida, Cancer nor parasites can survive in an alkaline body (according to my doctor). So I try to stay on an alkaline diet.
3. Don't let any grass grow under your feet, get up and exercise.
RED: Great recommendations, Terri! But I'm glad you didn't suggest giving up bakery food!! So let's get back to that amazing photo. What is your rock climbing secret?
Terri: Hahaah ... Rock Climbing! That's really funny. I am the worlds biggest klutz.
RED: But the photo shows you rock climbing at RED Rock Canyon!
|Terri's Rock-climbing tips!|
Terri: I just flipped the picture. My Hubs and I got a big laugh out of it because at first glance … well, longer than a glance, my daughter and grandkids thought I was really climbing that mountain. My granddaughter asked my daughter “How can Grandma climb like that with her hip replacement?” It took them awhile to realize I would never climb that high!!
RED: Hahaha! Well, you sure fooled me!! That's a great trick – I might
try it myself!! Thanx for dropping in and sharing that great RED
moment with us!
Terri: Have a great weekend Red. I am sure you are going somewhere exciting.
RED: It's been a pleasure! Girlfriend, you ROCK! Or should I say RED ROCK!!
