As Curtis Whitson and his family face the 40-foot waterfall realization hits: they’re trapped. In addition to the cascade, a churning rapid thrashes below and unscalable canyon walls surround them on all sides. They’re cut off from the rest of the world with only one chance to raise help. But would such an improbable SOS reach anyone?
As a keen outdoorsman, 44-year-old Whitson is no stranger to hiking. With this in mind, it seemed like a natural choice for a joint family vacation/Father’s Day activity. He subsequently planned a four-day trip for June 2019 to get back to nature and spend some time with his loved ones.
