The last steps for getting to Sky Pond is to climb a tall wet waterfall. This is information we could have used 8-10 miles ago. In the last few years, Shannon has developed a greater fear of heights. This waterfall didn’t help. But once you get to it and there is a line of people... what are you going to do? She made it up, but then had to come down.
She did it and the videos in no way show how tall it was or how we felt we were climbing a waterfall on top of the world. Well over 10,000 feet, we had the feeling we were going to fall of the Earth. We didn’t.
I'm Michael Smith and this website is simply documentation of our travels over the course of 500 days. We are very lucky. We went bowling ... and some other stuff.
