Denny Caneff was a 26-year-old Peace Corps volunteer in Cameroon, Africa, when he and a friend took a couple of days off to hike and explore the surrounding area. The young men got a ride out to an old railroad built at the dawn of the 20th century during the German colonial rule of the nation and hiked into the jungle.
