The waterfall won.
These are some of Rich W's photos from our Annapurna Circuit trek in Nepal last September. He's got some amazing photos--better than mine--and this is a particularly funny and memorable sequence.
The waterfall goes directly across the trail. It's a little hard to see here, but there's a pretty decent drop on the left. I started off walking the edge, to avoid the falls. But the footing seemed sketchy. So, with no good explanation in retrospect, I move away from the slippery edge, but then directly into the waterfall. That thing hit me SO HARD. You can't even see me in the one photo, except a bit of my backpack--I am in the waterfall. I got drenched. My pack got drenched. The force of the waterfall almost knocked me over. When I popped out, this nice guide decided to point out the rocks that I should cross on. Then he gave me a hand.
Life is good! ( :
