Liz conquers her fear of heights

While hiking on the flanks of Mt. Pilatus, a beautiful mountain just outside of Lucerne, Liz slipped, fell, and somehow shattered her tibia in the process.  We were fortunate to run into some very generous mountain bikers, who helped us call for help.  The pictures do a better job of telling the story than I ever could.

Liz was such a trooper — she stayed calm, cool, and collected throughout the ordeal, and let us know what worked and didn’t work as we help to move her to a clearing where the helicopter could see us.  Two months later, she is still on crutches, but her bones and ligaments are on their way to full strength again.  What do you say, Liz, same time and place next summer? ;)
