To get close enough to take this photo, I crossed some hazardous terrain. At one point, I hit a roadblock: a swamp. I found a spot where the swamp narrowed and contemplated for 5 minutes if I could jump the gap. I jumped. The ground near the edge of the swap was more unstable than I realized.
I didn’t clear the gap.
Before I knew it, I was fully submerged in 5 feet of swap water. There is moss in my beard. The whole event was like a scene from a cartoon. I pushed myself out of the swamp like a swimming pool. I can’t believe my iPhone still works. I was 100% soaking wet when I snapped this elk photo.
