Pure joy through exploration, adventure, challenge, wilderness. River travel is something new for me. #paddling the river I have backpacked many times began to teach me to go with the flow in a whole new way. I love #newmexico with all my being. There are no words for this paradise. This is my nourishment and inspiration.

Spring winds of the desert stir this arid land awake from its winter slumber. Relentless wind, warming days and crisp nights mark this season, along with tiny buds and the gentle buzz of creatures awakening. The stones tell stories silently of their eons beneath this vast sky. Compressed bones of previous beings have become the rock, and the rock has become them. I am but feet upon this landscape, endlessly learning, wondering, worshiping.
