Miracle in the Wilderness

If you doubt there are angels out there looking over us, this story from the San Francisco Chronicle just might change your mind.

From SFGate.com -- "Every day is a good day for Amy Racina. It wasn't always that way, but crashing 60 feet into a granite ravine changed her perspective.

Racina of Healdsburg, a seasoned backpacker, was on a solo trip two years ago in the Tehipite Valley, a seldom-visited area of Kings Canyon National Park, which is in the southern end of the Sierra Nevada directly east of Fresno. She was 12 days into a 162-mile trip when she lost the trail she was on. As she carefully crisscrossed down the valley looking for the trail, the ground suddenly gave way and she found herself careering through the air."

"So this is how it ends," she thought in the seconds before she slammed into a granite ravine.

The fall nearly killed Racina, but the miracle -- the first of many -- was that it didn't.

Racina has published a book recounting her rescue and arduous recovery. "Angels in the Wilderness" ($24.95, Elite Books in Santa Rosa), is titled for the three hikers who saved her life after they came upon her even though she had been off-trail when she fell in a remote area visited only by a handful of people each season."

This is truly a remarkable story to read. It definitely made me re-think the challenges I am faced with on a daily basis. I hope it's an inspiration to you as well. To read the complete story, go to SFGate.com.

Make it a great day!
