|Standing at the bottom of Mooney Falls. WOW.|
This piece, which originally appeared on the Expand Outdoors blog in 2012, is meant to pay homage to one of the most incredible experiences of my outdoors life. When I read it the other day, man did those memories come flooding back. A lot's changed for all of us over the past four years, but this trip, we'll always have this in common!
Wake up. Turn off air conditioner. Take shower. Pet cats. Head into the city. Ignore traffic. Revel in shade created by tall building after tall building. Remember how a short time ago, the same sought-after shade was created by towering red rock canyon walls. Trip over a dead cockroach. Grab an iced coffee. Feel the incredible absence of two dozen new friends. Sigh.
