Gerald’s Journey: The Man Versus The Mountain

GERALDS JOURNEY SITE PICTURE

Day had fallen and darkness blanketed the mountains. Rain drowned the sky dimming the moonlight. The headlights on the car had become our guide, but it was as faint as a distant twinkling star behind the showering cry of the night sky. It was a split second to think, a split second to choose, a split second to react. “We should have hit that deer! We should have sacrificed its life in exchange to keep ours!” I thought to myself. At that very moment we turned, we slid, and we plummeted down the side of the mountain. “Take hold of the wheel!” I screamed to the driver. The driver panicked and let go of the wheel while covering his eyes and screaming, “Gerald we are going to die!” It was a split second to think, a split second to choose, a split second to react. I leaped over the driver and held on to the wheel. I found myself face to face with the vantage point of my fate. I didn’t see death, instead I seen rocks and trees. I had seen the tires touching the surface. The depth to the bottom was as shallow as my fears had become in that moment. “Wow, we are surviving!” I chanted as we glided down the side of the mountain! “Wow, we survived!”
