As a follow up to one of my earlier blogs I'm so stoked for camping this weekend. We're taking Russ and Randa and we're going to do some hikes I've never done before. I'm so envious of people that get out to the desert every weekend and explore some canyon that 99.9% of the worlds population never get to see.
I was on a website for canyoneering and found this quote that I think sums up why I much prefer the desert now, to the mountains or any other place.
The knowledge that refuge is available, when and if needed, makes the silent inferno of the desert more easily bearable. Mountains complement desert as desert complements city, as wilderness complements and completes civilization.
