10 below the other night in eastern Oregon but lucky me, I'm still "virtual snowbirding" around the Southwest. Today I packed up the virtual RV and drove up to southern Utah, to hike through the colorful canyons that flank the Paria River.
Sudden flash floods can bring a wall of water and debris eight feet deep roaring through this valley, but much of the time the "river" is a small trickle. The heat of the day parches moisture out of the wet mud of the riverbed, cracking it into countless fissures, their fragile edges curling upward like little clay bowls. They crunch and crackle loudly as I walk across them, disintegrating in puffs of fine dry powder.
