Earth's Butt Crack

A couple days ago after work I decided to drive out to Paulina Falls to try and catch it in a freeze. There are many waterfalls along the way to Paulina and I took a road that leads to one of the dozen. Driving along in my friends jeep, I was stoked to make it out to a frozen waterfall. All of the sudden I stopped dead in my tracks. I hit a sink hole in the jeep. Throwing the car in reverse quickly it did nothing. The car was bottomed out. Freaking out and trying to dig the car out as fast as possible before it got dark it seemed I was making no progress. After an hour of running around in the woods trying to find something to get beneath the tires I started to give up. I walked out to the main road and started calling everyone possible. Finally someone stopped and asked if I needed help. I startled the guy by yelling yes in a crazy excitement. After forty five minutes we managed to push the jeep back out on the main road. Thank you dude if you ever read this. No more than five minutes later this crazy sunset was happening. I remembered this spot on the way up and ran out to it quickly. I ran straight across the ice to pissed off to care as I fell in the water set the tripod up and started shooting away. That is my crazy story for the week.
