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 Ultra Deep Field - 13 Billion Years Ago

This 4-minute video explains how we came to see all the way to very edge of the universe, some 13.5 billion years ago. Watch the humbling video here.

I post this in the memory of Joe Orr, who began his celestial journey on Dec. 9 of last year. Joe loved the night sky and the wonder it engendered in our inquisitive selves.
