I am a native in this world And think in it as a native thinks

How I'll always remember the Tablelands

One of those examples of excellent timing that are so rare in my life.

It was drizzling as we walked out into the Tablelands and listened to the Parks Canada ranger explaining the geology and plant life. I wandered around and took a few pictures, and it started to rain a little harder so I decided to head back to the bus.

It wasn't far -- maybe a 15 minute walk. The rain got a little heavier; I walked a little faster. The rain got a little heavier still; I started walking a lot faster. And just as I got to the bus, the skies opened up into a truly impressive deluge.

I was wet. But not nearly so wet as I would have been if I'd decided to turn back even a minute later.
