Dave, this is a remembrance posting for you.
I still see you kneeling across the canyon by that pool of water, living and breathing effortlessly and perfectly for the last time. Many seasons have come and gone in Iso since then: desert flowers bloomed, rain fallen, winds played, landscape shadows grown then vanished--all those shifting moments of nature to be forgotten by someone eventually. But the nuances of time, place, and season on that particular day with you is preserved eternally there for me in all its detail of an Arizona canyon springtime on the Rim.
Rest in peace....I'll always wish I could have done more.

|With a bit more traffic this route will clean up nicely and easily be a 3 star fun trad line. It's wandery, but that's part of the fun.|
