Gone to See North America Road Trip. Day 06: Lake Chelan, Washington.
Losing It — Or Darwin Award Candidate. While riding the “Lady of the Lake II” ferry crossing Lake Chelan, I caught this Jet Skier lose his grip as he was jumping the wake behind the ship. He had been showing off to his girlfriend. Even though the Nikon D3x camera does not have the high-speed burst rate of the D3 camera, sometimes you get lucky. It appeared that he was OK once his companion made it to his position.
