Escalante is such an amazing place. A beautifully appropriate photograph.


We can spend most of our lives without much awareness of the things our survival depends on. Part of the wilderness experience for me is that changing those bases of survival brings all that awareness back. Taking as little as possible, just the essentials of survival, makes the experience richest.

Hmmm. This looks like Phipps Wash? Fond memories, in any case.
