Timebinder – The Prow, Blodgett Canyon

Went up a big rock yesterday with Conor. The day ended up being much colder than we anticipated due to a constant 40mph (or so) wind.

I discovered that a camera of mine I thought was broken works as long as I don’t use the zoom.

Recently I was lucky enough to spend some time in the desert of Utah with an ever-changing group of lovely people.

Here is a quote from the introduction of Marcus Aureluis’ ‘Meditations’, a book my mother sent me before I left.

Lead me, Zeus and Destiny, withersoever I am appointed to go. I will follow without wavering; even though I turn coward and shrink, I shall have to follow all the same.


Here are a few pictures from the drive down.
