Tangled Twine of Summertime

Now that Autumn has begun and I’ve been reminded that crunching orange, red, brown and yellow leaves is a ton of fun, I’m continuing the journey.

I spent my last month (May) in South America traveling through the Southwest-esque landscapes of Northern Argentina to bask in Bolivian beauty. The Salar de Uyuni, the mines in Potosi, and the sunshine soaked beaches of Isla Del Sol on Lago Titicaca were packed with fun characters, the reality of poverty, geological wonder, and smiles.

However, the rumble in the jungle got me real good and although I enjoyed my last month down south, it was quite a struggle. Getting home (across the Bolivian/Peruvian border) was a true feat in itself and of course, The Empire Struck Back on the final (of four) flights home!

Summertime in the Sierras is my favorite place in the world to be, and that will remain true for the rest of my life.

Back at Loon Lake as Assistant Director for Deer Crossing Camp. Tap into these sunsets and truly understand the nectar of the mountains.

Best crew. Am proud to have had the opportunity to work with such a stellar staff.

Caught up with some of the Davis crew here and there for less than 24 hour day off periods a few times over the course of the summer. And what EPIC times they were. Merced River, July 2011.

Spent a week or so after camp caving, climbing, and shenanigan-ing around and then headed to Davis to help move the girls out of the Glacier House. Sent Lauren and her low-riding car off north to Eugene and then a week later cleared out of the house for good. Thanks for the best times Glacier House. Everest, I’ll miss your steep steps.

Come September, Lena and I headed North towards Oregon and Washington and galavant around we sure did.

More to come on the Northwest adventure and what’s going on now.
