Just as I edged from the shadow of the rock, the rain and wind eased. The lightning broke. The ground continued to roll and buckle, but I turned immediately. Determined to conquer this mountain, I crawled along the edge of the ravine. Twice more I had to vomit over the edge.

At last I reached a small lake on a high plateau, its water completely smooth. It surprised me so much I didnít notice at first the ground had stopped thrashing. I sat a few minutes relaxing my tense body and gazing into peaceful reflections of clouds and mountain peaks.
