Well, we’re gettin’ outa Dodge…Rapid City, that is…and for the first time, we’re exercising our ability to change directions mid-stride. We had planned to climb in the Red after the VC, but the atypically wet weather here in SD has made us a little less psyched about the prospect of a hurricane-driven, drenched La Niña fall in the rainforest of eastern Kentucky. New Mexico seems like a good idea. All we want right now is to be warm and dry, and honestly, to enjoy a bit more of the solitude we’ve encountered at the crags we’ve visited thus far.
This life is quiet. It will certainly have louder moments to come, but for now, we’re pretty happy with just the low hum of nature buzzing around us.
A couple things: 1. Although we’re not professional photographers, the pictures we take and use are, well, ours. Friends and readers are welcome to repost them on Facebook or other personal social media accounts, but please ask if your intention is to use them for any sort of business or product promotion outside of our established relationships. 2. The ads below show up because we’re too frugal to pay enough to make them go away. They’re not usually for anything we endorse or support.
