So, it’s snowing
This winter I’ll be living in a town that is ruled by the gang of dogs that roam the streets. Emily and I are living in a small cabin in the town of Placerville, outside of Telluride. Unfortunately, we don’t have phone service or internet. So that means that I won’t be able to post very many photos this winter. I’ll try and post stuff when I get the chance. Hope all is well with everyone!!!
A Hundred Miles From Nowhere || October 19, 2013
Whenever I go to the Escalante, I feel an obligation to visit a certain canyon. The beauty of this place is unimaginable. It’s as if it’s the Garden of Eden. Springs drip from the canyon walls and the birds echo in the canyons. This is a spiritual place. A place like no other. It’s one of the few remaining canyons that hold the essence of Glen Canyon, that was buried by Lake Powell. My heart aches for that place.

Whoa! Just realized that I’m moving to Telluride in two days. Super Stoked!!!!
At night, the desert comes alive. Coyotes howl, ringtails become mischevious, and the kangaroo rat cleans up your kitchen.
We weren’t going to let the government shutdown ruin our vacation. Instead, we saw it as an opportunity.

The sun awakens us, and we slumber out of the truck. We needed an early start today, because we knew that we had a long day ahead of us. After following a broken trail of cairns, we finally make our way to the Escalante River. We visited Neon Canyon, and relaxed in the Golden Cathedral. The colors were amazing! We visited some petroglyphs, and took a bath in the river. As we were trekking out of the canyon, we were blessed with a full moon rising over the canyons.
Red Breaks may be the most beautiful walk through slot canyon out there.
