... ranch is located. On our way to Hotchkiss the heavens unleashed a torrent. It got worse than any downpour I’ve experienced in South Florida and it became clear that the danger of flash flooding could become real as we drove through a section of fast moving mud slurry beginning to spread across the road.

She was now traveling with a guy named Chris, a biochemistry professor in his late 50's. They had met a couple weeks prior and stuck together.

The trail took us alongside of the top of the canyon, and we could see down the over 2,000 ft drop, and hear the roar of the river even from the top - it was spectacular. We didn’t complete the whole trail since it was late and we wanted to have enough sunlight to cook dinner. Once we were back at the campsite we decided to fix ...
