Lucid Intent? No

I was hanging out with Mike Beeler (a childhood friend who I've saw at college a couple times). He was driving us down a road
that ran alongside a large canyon to the left. I understood that it was the Smoky Mountains, although it looked much like the Grand Canyon. As we were driving around Mike was telling me about how he went on Spring Break down here with a bunch of guys from school, and the group got bigger each year. The road that we were driving on was very steep and narrow, with a vertical dropoff to the left. It was like the entire canyon side was terraced. On the terrace below the road there was a drainage river that filled the entire terrace. Eventually Mike drives over a rise and splashes into a big puddle. He loses visability momentarily and runs off the road, causing the car to fall into the river below. As we fell, I yelled "We're going in the river!" and he replied "Thats exactly right!". After we hit the water and our car was rapidly sinking, Mike yelled to "Jump out of the car!" and "Roll down the window!". As the water level approached my head, I woke up.
I recently went to the Grand Canyon. A few years ago I went on Spring Break to the Smokies. I recently looked at pictures of a terraced field. In Montana, I've seen irrigation ditches terraced into the hillside.
