In August 2012, Nate and I spent ten days in the desert-canyons of Utah and Arizona. Prior to and during our backpacking trip through the Grand Canyon, I compiled several accounts of my own direct experience with sunlight, fire, rock and wilderness. Fire-Earth Stories (currently under reconstruction) is the anthology of these experiences. Trip Notes is an account of our time in the Grand Canyon. Nate kept a journal of our Grand Canyon trip and our time in Zion Canyon. I’ll post a link to his account later. Here is a link to a slide show of the trip.
