All Humans Are Welcome Here!


AZT Water

Really working on my internal dowsing rod and it’s paying off. I don’t have water info for the Arizona Trail other than USGS maps so finding these tanks because I’m exploring a bit off trail is a treat. My mom thinks it’s gross but this is a fact of life for desert hiking. We drink… continue reading

Tired of Narrows

I told Joery I was “tired of” narrows and slot canyons. “You’re bored of them?” he replied, surprised. “No, I’m not bored of them, it’s more like I’m full.” Like I’m full and I can’t eat any more.

I like bathtubs and wifi and the Sun n’ Sand Motel in Kanab serves sweet homemade muffins and bread for breakfast, but honestly right now I miss my outdoor home. Back into the woods in the morning! Photo taken last week sometime camped on Yellow Rock, ~5300ft and balmy. 🍼

Camp in the burn, but with the most beautiful rainbow view. I met Mike and Erin here, two other campers from Brooklyn who also got a permit without realizing what a treat they were in for. We all braved a very cold night for this, woke up spattered in snow, and all left early in… continue reading

Under the Bridge

Part two of two of my “Ain’t Too Proud” series. Ain’t too proud to sleep under a bridge. Maybe really stupid, considering it’s raining and this is BUCKSKIN WASH, but not proud. I got rocked to sleep by the sound of semi trucks roaring by above (soothing because it reminds me of living in my… continue reading


Those black clouds hit like a wall and found me huddled under a ponderosa, eating clams and Reese’s peanut butter and trying to look cool. Joery came up behind me in his ridiculous turquoise poncho and announced that the old LeFevre shack was less than 100ft from where I was huddled so we went there… continue reading


Currently at about 9000′ in a snow flurry, laughing a lot at my own jokes and sorta kinda really cold. In other news I just impressed two men by deftly opening a can of tuna without a can opener. Next level achieved.
