The Rogue River: Photo
STAY AWAY FROM THE EDGE!
Here is why I say this:
I’ve walked right off the trail and into the Rogue River. And that is after being warned by my husband to “...slow down!” The sad thing is I said, “I see it.” He’d told me the trail turned a sharp right at water’s edge. Next thing I knew I was up to my waist in the Rogue. I blame the plunge on inertia/gravity. AND, the trail was downhill all the way to the scary waters of one of Oregon’s most famous rivers (my excuses). It will be a while before I forget this incident. Why? You ask. Well a whole boatload of people was on hand to watch me, several I knew personally.
What do I believe one can learn from this experience? Well, for one, listen to good advice from a loved one and, second, don’t fool with gravity/inertia because there will be consequences! I’ll let you do your own thinking here. Have a grand day and stay out of the water! ...Linda Newton-Perry
