The year was 1994.
On assignment for a high-school journalism class, myself and 2 friends needed to video outdoor activities existing in our area. It was a sunny afternoon in early October (yes October) when I suggested we head down to the Kootenay River pools below my dad's house in South Slocan. A popular cliff jumping spot known as "Paradise," the autumn air was cold but the water still warm. I guess I wasn't ready to let the idea of that summer die just yet.
Jump ahead to January 2012:
I'm just about to become a new father and I cant help thinkin about what sort of crazy shit my kid will end up doing when they are in their teens. And should my kid ever ask what I was like as a teenager... I'll pull out this video.
