Walking in Canyon Country
32 pages. Pocket Portfolio
Part of the Wish You Were Here Pocket Portfolio Series, Walking in Canyon Country takes you on an adventure throughout Arches & Canyonlands. Along with beautiful landscape photos and descriptive text, there is much to be learned from this series.
This is how I am in this place: quiet, attentive, slow, rhythmic, goal-less. My reward is simply that I am here. At knee level, a whole world is waiting to be discovered. Feathery old man sage. Prickly blackbrush. Bleached jawbones of stripped juniper. Furry coyote scat. A pale Mariposa resting on a scarlet globemallow. Biting red ants scurry about, cleaning up the desert. Cheeks bulging with seeds, a ground squirrel, feather duster tail held aloft, caches a winter larder among the protected roots of a dwarf pine. A jackrabbit hops in front of me.
