Shelves: non-fiction, desert

"Snow was melting off the rock, out there somewhere, like secrets. My dream of full water pockets in the white stone, cupped in desert varnish, would be reborn. I shifted, closed myself in, and listened to snow touch the earth. Millions of snowflakes nearly hummed."

An well written and informative guide to hiking the Canyonlands National Park. I'm no hiker, but after reading this book I feel like packing my sleeping bag and some beef jerky and going camping in the winter for a day or two.

The author spent a winter in Canyonlands and offers this part-journal and part-travel guide synopsis of the whole experience.
