Spending a lot of time in the desert lately - not always climbing, but it’s provided me with plenty of insight and inspiration. The eastern Sierra and Mojave desert in particular.

Love the writing. The story is too short is my only criticism. I was thinking they were going to go off climbing and come back to a bashed out window and empty car. I'll admit to being disappointed and happy to not see that unhappy fate.

Thanks, glad you enjoyed. I appreciate any criticism - it is short. But it’s part of a larger collection of creative non- fiction stories that I think share a similar theme - the desert and what society does to it, both directly and indirectly.

Guideline #1: Don't be a jerk.
