Imagine climbing through Zion National Park, only to see a flash flood rush toward you. That's what happened to David Frankhouser, Joe Cain and Jason Fico. The three rock climbers recount their harrowing experience and how they survived falling off a 60-foot cliff. "I thought I was going to die," Joe said. How an innocent hike turned into a fight for survival?
These were experienced men in the toughest possible position. I am reminded Nature is no respecter of persons. That they survived that kind of baptism is a reason for amazement--and thankfulness. I have no doubt is was a crucial, reorienting experience.
As a newcomer to the particular hazards of the West I appreciate hearing about how quickly such danger can appear. Phil Emanuel –Sep 30, 2010 22:18:02 PM
