We meet on a narrow trail etched into the side of the mountain.
” What’s up ahead?”
“Caribou Pass. But there’s a fresh rock slide with loose rock blocking the trail. I made it over but probably shouldn’t have tried it. Be careful.”
“Thanks for the warning. I think I’ll check it out.”
We ease carefully past each other on the narrow ledge.
Hiking down to the pass, I turn a corner and come to the slide. Looking off to my right, I get a touch of acrophobia. It’s a long way down. Decision time.
