Vu Jàdé

Targee National Forest
Idaho, USA

The sensation of having had an experience before, and recalling it right as the instance occurs, we all know as Deja vu. Therefore the opposite of that sensation would be the feeling of having never experienced such a moment before. Your reaction would naturally be one of amazement and awe - a true first time experience.

In the mid 80’s I attended college just down the road from this wonderful waterfall. On a hot summer day we would all pile into the back of a pickup truck and make our way out here to the tiny goat trail that existed at the time, and float down the river in our over inflated inner tubes, just because we could. Oh what joyous times those were.

And although I have been here many times before, this time seemed as though it was the first. Vu Jàdé had just struck!

See Ya On the Trail!
