Whew! It's been awhile since I've had time to post here. I'm sorry to the one or two readers who ever look here. But "All-In-Days"karma" has not died - it was just taking a rest.
This post serves to remember Georgie White Clark, pioneer river maven of the Grand Canyon. My colleague, Joan L. shared a link from the year 2001 that recalls the renaming of a rapid in Grand Canyon after Georgie. But the article goes on to give a lot more background on the woman, an enigmatic soul who found solace among the rocks and rivers of the southwest. Read it here.
In the winter of 1985 I was driving through the Mojave Desert with a friend, talking about our apparent need for new river gear. As we passed the Twenty Nine Palms Marine Base, a man unexpectedly appeared on the side of the road selling used ammo cans. My friend and I laughed wildly and quickly came to realize that the moment was "All In A Days' Karma". This blog contains the occasional ramblings of a died-in-the-wool westerner who loves seeing, understanding, and being alive upon these landscapes. I cherish the moments of bliss and irony that come to all of us as we explore the planet and its residents (and perhaps visitors) in the short time we are here.
