Sharing piece from Susi addressing the prompt.
We were so grateful the sun finally began dipping behind the mountain range. The heat dissipated some even though it cast a hazy, burnt atmosphere around us. The clouds above us spread out an undulating, wavy pattern. Wrestling coyotes, wrangling with wild horses, evading snakes – what a daymare this had been!
As we lay on the riverbank, after escaping all those perils, we realized what a predicament this had become. Exhaustion was quickly setting alongside the fear. Making matters even worse; all our gear and supplies had floated away. The situation had become life or death. What a nightmare.
