Such a beautiful place! I went there when I was very young, and have to go back. I don’t do rock climbing – maybe I’m not adventurous enough. However, I do love hiking and exploring the outdoors. These pictures are just large enough to affect you. The quotes are well chosen, and are of the kind that inspire and motivate, rather than command. They are from adventurers, for adventurers. The pairing of the words with images is careful, thoughtful. The photographer’s skill is not just in the natural formations, but the light, and states of water – two key ingredients in life. Close-ups of waterfalls look as if the water is moving (!) beyond the fixed page. These photos are to be re-read. For example, mule deer grazing on oak leaves – I had to rewind to see the leaves. Each detail is worth discovering. The start of a trail may not be remarkable for its vista, but is a place we have all been and gone through, the first steps of our adventures. In these times of fires, drought, and other disasters, we must appreciate even more what we have, and do our best to conserve this world for the future.

Note: I won a copy of this title through Goodreads' First Reads. ( )
