I took my baby girl up to the Guides Training Seminar this weekend—the annual rendezvous of Grand Canyon boatmen. I gave a short talk on the centennial of the Kolb Expedition and the rebirth of Edith. Meanwhile Edith disguised herself as a bookshelf, but fooled no one. Now I have to hose all the drool marks off her. She got a lot of wow and a whole lot of love.


Pack up tomorrow, drive to the Green River Wednesday, launch Thursday. Weather and water are looking good and we are psyched. Woohoo.

I expect there will be no blogposts until I return, so ’til then, happy trails.
