Summer Series | Bridge to Nowhere
From arriving an hour late and hiking without a guide to getting off trail and climbing a rocky slope, things definitely didn’t go as planned. We hiked regardless hoping that we could still bungee jump. The anticipation was building as the bungee jump was awaiting at the end of the 3 to 4 hour long hike. Scared of heights, I never thought I’d ever do something like this. I haven’t even been on drop tower before. After taking that jump and trusting that the bungee cord will not snap on me, life just felt great. I felt so grateful for the whole experience. One of the bungee workers, Roger, even offered a second free jump. After bungee jumping, we all swam at the river beneath the bridge and just had a blast. Surprisingly, Roger even came down and we all hung out before heading back. He became our guide on the way back! Through this experience, I learned that even though things didn’t go as planned, new pieces can fall into place, creating an experience that was way better than I had expected.
With this montage, I went for a more fast paced and happy vibe that resembles that anticipation that I had leading up to the bungee jump. I wanted to create more cinematic shots during the hike, but my mind was so focused on the bungee jump that I just turned on my camera while hiking instead of taking the time to get other shots. Work with what you have right!? Enjoy!
Shout out to the bros of @sodiumdanceco and special thanks to my Pham bro Erik for inviting me!
Sometimes taking the first steps on a bridge of uncertainty is the hardest part. We don't always know where the end of the path will lead, but it is trust in our knowing and deep courage that leads us where we need to go
