Thank you so much, Eric. Actually, going to Zion right after a snowstorm wasn't by design. It was the only time of the year both my wife and I have enough time off to travel a little distance. This time it happened to be right after a week of storms. Driving on icy roads wasn't much fun, but being in Zion was.
It's covered in a few books, and I'm not sure that I want to encourage people to go back up there. It's almost impossible to protect. I'd like to go back up and find a way to protect the critical stretch; what I used was a stump that would take about one fall.
"So I was sitting in my cubicle today, and I realized, ever since I started working, every single day of my life has been worse than the day before it. So that means that every single day that you see me, that's on the worst day of my life."
