Two weeks ago Parley, along with some other adults, took the 16 and 17-year-old boys from church down to Zions National Park for their summer camp. While hiking in the "narrows" there was a place where you can slide down some slick rocks into a pool of water. By the time it was Parley's turn the water was murky and he couldn't see where to land. His left foot landed first and firmly planted itself while the rest of his leg twisted. He said he heard it pop. They were about 7 miles into an 11 mile hike, so the trooper that he is, he hiked out with the help of the boys. A week later when it was still big and swolen, he decided to go to the dr. Sure enough, his ankle was broken in two places. After a visit to the orthopedic surgeon, he doesn't have to have surgery but does have to wear the big boot and be on crutches for at least a month. Poor guy. He also walked all over New York City before he knew it was actually broken. What a tough man!
p.s. This is not the same leg that he hurt three summers ago playing basketball when he snapped his achilles tendon :)
