Jack and Peg Emery, servants and leaders for Arvada Rotory Club, held a number of eye-glass and medical clinics at the 8,000 foot high community of Guachochi, Mexico. I went along and made a documentary titled Medical Flights to Sierra Madre. They typically flew in for a four-day weekend and, when they drove, it could take a week or more. The volunteers paid their own expenses and chipped in for gas.
Imagine finding a blind Indian girl and bringing back her sight as shown in my documentary. Each trip had its own personality and lots of adventure. One winter I had a lifetime experience and it made a really awesome back-story, Survival at Sierra Madre, and my photos still bring back the thrill of that adventure. This was one of my most memorable experiences… truly unbelievable, and it happened just as written! Don’t skim, the text is carefully crafted for a special ending.
