     The trail to Beaver Falls was unexpected. It was quite unlike the trail we had followed into the campground. Instead of dry shrubs and cacti, we were hiking through thick wild grapevines that sometimes extended far above our ...

I slowly, one step at a time, descended like a rock climber. As I reached the bottom I looked up to see Andrew concentrating on his foot and hand holds as he worked his way down. Some areas of the climb down were certainly made for people with longer ...

One of the greatest things about traveling is how slow time seems to move. A lot of my parents' complaints about things moving so quickly has a lot to do with a particular combination of busy-ness and routine that occupies the mind without really ...
