Raising Subject

by Joy Linn

Matt nears the top of the cliff - the edge is always a challenge.

Jeremy, Jason W. and Lindsay prepare to assist Matt at the edge. Lindsay also keeps in touch with the raising team.

As Matt nears the edge, it becomes apparent that the current arrangement isn't going to work.

Matt decides to try a different position with respect to the litter, hoping he will be able to provide leverage to get the litter away from the edge.

No success.

Matt gets below the litter again and heaves out on the litter, trying to keep Don from tipping into the cliff face.

Whew - successfully over the edge!
