We trudge on only to find that the 'emerald' is more 'muddy brown' today. Big disappointment as we now have to make our way back along a cliffside trail with no barriers. Back at the river, we see what could be called 'emerald'. (squint) Hey, why did we walk all that way???
I met a woman who came to America from Australia 40 years ago. She bought a round-trip ticket and never used the return portion. Why would you if you could see this out of your bedroom window each morning?
