If we bought off this mountain alive, there will be lots of time to be scared as we recalled the ordeal.

The path used to be exceedingly slender. The climb were steep and rugged. we'd succeed in an altitude in far more than seven thousand 400 toes as we rode the crest of Mt. Francis.

On our quick left, a sheer rock wall rose vertically with occasional outcroppings that jutted into the path. Our knees, every now and then, rubbed the craggy rock face.

We either knew that we have been in a in all likelihood lifestyles threatening state of affairs. If a cougar or a snake spooked the horses, we might all have a a technique price tag to the rocky backside of the canyon some distance below.

That grotesque notion was once nonetheless in my brain whilst our undesirable state of affairs grew decidedly extra advanced. As I enthusiastic about the path forward, my brain rejected what my eyes may perhaps in actual fact see. Thirty ft prior to us, the path easily disappeared! All i'll see past that time was once air . . . and many it. I questioned if Edie, who rode just a couple of ft in the back of me, observed what I observed . . . She did.
