One Amazing Thing I’ve Done
While visiting the small village of La Salette in the French Alps one June. Woke up one morning just after sunrise. The clouds were all down in the valley below. As the temperature began to rise, so did the clouds. The fog began to charge up the mountain and there I was with some friends totally embraced by the raising mist. Awesome! Another experience that I will never forget was when I got invited to go rafting with some friends on the Middle Fork of the Salmon River in Idaho. The Spring run-off was immense that year and the river's rating at that time was Class IV, very difficult. On the third day of the trip the raft I was in came around a huge rock in the river and as we were cresting wave after wave a "hole" opened up on the downside of a crest. Our raft plummeted into the hole and was swallowed by the closing waves. This 20 foot raft with seven people was totally submerged for about 6 to 7 seconds as outlookers later reported. Wild!
