Quote of the Day

Early morning snow falling in the desert - the bright vast land - coffee and hotcakes on the stove - all around, golden silence spangled with bird cries - the feeling of something splendid about to occur - a setting for visions, pageants, dreams, cavalry battles - Balanced Rock at Arches, snow-covered mountains beyond and me squatting on sandstone in the clear clear chill air, coffee cup in hand, sun blazing down on snow already beginning to melt from juniper, cliffrose, dead pine, pinnacle, ramada - brief bliss.

- Edward Abbey, Confessions of a Barbarian
