April 17, 2007

Sunday, April 22nd is Earth Day and this year it looks like global warming has finally made it into the media spotlight as a legitimate news item, at least there hasn't been this much attention given to environmental issues in the mainstream media since the inception of Earth Day back in 1970. Seems like green is the new black (fashion joke there, sorry) and it's about time, too. For me Earth Day is certainly about pondering one's own carbon footprint, but primarily Earth Day has always meant exploring and appreciating large tracts of unspoiled wild places; going to those places, and experiencing non-civilization and undeveloped landscapes. I like to go to the places where the only sound you can hear is the deafening pulse of blood rushing through your ears.

From the Southwest archives:

Tres Alamos Wilderness, Arizona

Carrizozo Wilderness Study Area, New Mexico

Grand Canyon, Arizona

A younger version of me, descending the Bright Angel trail, Grand Canyon - 1997

More to come Friday. For now I'm off to Milwaukee.
