What's one of your fondest extraordinary experiences?

All of my best extraordinary experiences were not just the activity but who I was with. That made it special. One that sticks out was a trip to AZ with my College softball team. We "hiked" a mountain called Picacho Peak. I was terrified climbing that mountain but once we were on top and then came back down (the worst part was climbing back down) I felt a sense of freedom and accomplishment.
