It's like Burning Man ... if Burning Man moved to Flagstaff, cut back to three days, and held just 1,500 people. What'd you do this weekend?
Last night I returned dirty and inspired from Firefly Gathering – a three-day festival near Flagstaff built on art, yoga, music, workshops, and community. Basically, it's Burning Man if Burning Man were contained to just three days and 1500 dirty hippies. Firefly was my first “conscious ...

To meander or not to meander? That is the question. This post explains why I hike while I wait for the answer. 
I spontaneously decided to hike South Mountain late this afternoon. I did it because there was nothing else left for me to do. I'm ready to commit to plans for the summer, but life is telling me I have to wait. To meander or not to meander? That is the question.

When the meandering gets tough, the tough seek an endemic park experience. Here’s how I found my endemic experience at Grinnell Glacier.
The last two weeks were a whirlwind. I left Seattle on August 26, camped seven nights in Olympic National Park, drove 12 hours east to Montana (with a two-night layover in Wenatchee, Wash.), camped six nights in Glacier National Park, then drove six hours to Bozeman, Mont.
