The last few weeks I've been having vivid, technicolor dreams about the Grand Canyon. This always happens to me in spring, maybe remnants of years when winter private trips and spring commercial baggage boating were the norm, or from college when spring break always meant packing as many girls as possible into a Subaru Forester and heading south to the red rock.
Now, with Redside and the Idaho River Rendezvous, spring is one of my busiest seasons, but it doesn't mean that desert magic doesn't reach it's fingers up into my thoughts. When I told a friend on the chairlift I wasn't sure what we'd do for the "spring break" Casey gets, that I was feeling bad about leaving work, she said, "Emerald. You are going to take the week off. You are going to bring the dog. You'll figure the rest out." So... because we're adults and because we can, the boys and I are heading south next week for a simple desert backpacking trips. Gimme your best beta on the San Rafael Swell...
