Over the Pass
Good stuff, John. The more you write, the better. You become a bit more you each time you post. Also, it's okay to write about things that are not profound. Your joy at the wilderness comes through as a great, honest emotion. Haven't been through there in probably 25 years but remember how stunning it was. Camped at some spot not too far off the road and there was utter silence with the sunrise the next morning.
Goddamn Great John.
Barr chords and cheeseburgers. Perfect.
So touching and beautiful!
