“On the walls, and back many miles into the country, numbers of monument-shaped buttes are observed.  So we have a curious ensemble of wonderful features — carved walls, royal arches, glens, alcove gulches, mounds and monuments.  From which of these features shall we select a name?  We decided to call it Glen Canyon.

John Wesley Powell, 1869

Just a basic, down to Earth, laid back type of guy here, who loves the outdoors, the indoors, jazz on the turntable, a fire in the woodstove, the northern lights blazing across the sky, and the company of good friends. View all posts by icefogger
