Sound of the waterfall

Posted by SCC on Monday, August 20th, 2012.

The sound of the waterfall put me to bed each night and woke me every morning. My daily routine had me out of my tent and looking at the silhouette of Engineer Mountain in the pre-dawn light. I would then walk up the hill to our group area where the rest of my crew would gather for breakfast, laughs, and a solid warm-up before we hit the trail to start our day. The hours would float by as if they were suspended on the cumulus clouds above us, above the mountains, and into that space we mortals can only dream about. Our days were filled with work, worries were left somewhere below us, and all we had to concentrate on was the task at hand and the stories of our companions as we passed through our day.
