The Land Of Falling Down Rocks

I had hoped to hang around till sometime in early May. But with temperatures occasionally nudging into the mid 80's, I could feel the "noose" tightening around my time in Camp Klondike. Due to work and volunteer commitments, this would be Bobbie's last chance to join me, there, in my ramshackle Rv home-away-from-home.

Beyond Tower Arch Part II: Where Outdoor Life Sometimes Slips Through The Cracks...

What a glorious day of route-finding the gaps between colossal sandstone Fins, being humbled by the measure of Marching Men, and slip-navigating a tapering 16 inch crack so constricted I couldn't  draw a full breath. And best of all? We're still headed away from camp in search of the ultimate loop.

"Everything I need..."

Something hits me like a shovel
and I am stunned into believing
anything is possible...
suddenly I know
everything I need is waiting for me...

The Long Wander...just wandering, thinking, existing, and appreciating the luck of his landing

A man said to the universe: 
“Sir, I exist!”
“However,” replied the universe, 
“The fact has not created in me 
A sense of obligation.” 
Stephen Crane
