Going on a raft trip. See you next week.

“Benedicto: May your trails be crooked, winding, lonesome, dangerous, leading to the most amazing view. May your mountains rise into and above the clouds. May your rivers flow without end, meandering through pastoral valleys tinkling with bells, past temples and castles and poets’ towers into a dark primeval forest where tigers belch and monkeys howl, through miasmal and mysterious swamps and down into a desert of red rock, blue mesas, domes and pinnacles and grottos of endless stone, and down again into a deep vast ancient unknown chasm where bars of sunlight blaze on profiled cliffs, where deer walk across the white sand beaches, where storms come and go as lightning clangs upon the high crags, where something strange and more beautiful and more full of wonder than your deepest dreams waits for you — beyond that next turning of the canyon walls.”

— Edward Abbey

  1. Recentry returned from the G. Canyon. It always makes me rethink a photojournalism career. It might be time to go out and get some firstaid training so I can spend a good chunk of my life on that river. I think you’ll feel the same.

  2. Have a great trip, need I remind you the last time we rafted when our trusty captain taco’d the boat to spit us all out for a swim. . . good times had by all.
