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.

The Power of An Avalanche

Chris Rowan at Highly Allochthonous provided a link to an avalanche that occurred recently in France. You can watch the stunning footage here. It is amazing to see the speed and power of this rushing mass of snow! Of course, if you happened to be in the way of this, there would be no time to react but to only say goodbye.
