"The earth is not ... a mere fragment of dead history, strata upon strata, like the leaves of a book, an object for a museum and an antiquarian, but living poetry like the leaves of a tree, - not a fossil earth, but a living specimen."

Henry David Thoreau (with thanks to David Fleming for contributing this quotation)

The photographer got photographed ... sitting inside a slot canyon near Lake Powell, Arizona last year. If I look happy, it's because I was. If I look uncomfortable, it's because I was - they don't call them "slot canyons" for nothing.


Two of the writers whose work I find impressive are Edward Abbey and Henry David Thoreau. There are excellent Web sites devoted to them and their writing and careers, and you'll probably enjoy them if you are interested in these themes.

You might like to visit the Abbey site.
