Jessica says: It changes so suddenly. One moment it's paradise, the next it's trying to kill you.

Harrison says: Yep, that's how it can be up here. If it was easy to get to know it, it would be not challenging. You've got to treat the mountains like a high-spirited horse; never take it for granted.

Jessica says: It's the same with people, too.
