Places.

A friend of mine made this video and I thought it was worth sharing. It has nothing to do with bicycles, but everything to do with the amazing deserts of the Southwest that a lot of us hold so dear.

 

Canyonlands National Park, and the lands that border it are part of a complex tale of political horse-trading, pressures for resource extraction and recreational opportunities. Above all, this land is the true Wild West, a rugged and vastly untouched landscape, a place where we can find our true human spirit.

The Story of Place is a short film that takes us deep into the unprotected territory of the Greater Canyonlands region alongside Craig Childs, Ace Kvale and Jim Enote, who narrate the story of this grand landscape, how it has shaped each and every one of us. This region of southeastern Utah is a veritable well of human spirit, an endless supply of recreation, solitude, wonder and history. This place and its story are irreplaceable. This land is worth protecting.

  2. I love Craig Childs. My favorite book of his is the Secret Knowledge of Water. If you have not done so already, check it out

  3. That was simply amazing. Wow. “Where do we want to steer our civilization, what do we want to have left when we’re done?” I dont think I’ve ever heard it put so simply and directly.

  4. Nice. Ya gotta get up and take a look at the San Rafael Swell. It’s like Canyonlands but without humans. It’s BLM land, so you can camp anywhere you like for $0. Last time out, we camped six nights in Iron Wash and saw exactly zero humans or vehicles. Try the loop hike up Sheep Cave Canyon to Ednah Bridge, across the rim of the Eastern Reef, and back down Watchtower Cy. It will warp your little mind.
