    Today is Ed Abbey's birthday, which is a pretty good excuse to drop this little short film I shot in November with one of my favorite quotes. Some cool scenes, hope you enjoy!

    “Water, water, water....There is no shortage of water in the desert but exactly the right amount , a perfect ratio of water to rock, water to sand, insuring that wide free open, generous spacing among plants and animals, homes and towns and cities, which makes the arid West so different from any other part of the nation. There is no lack of water here unless you try to establish a city where no city should be.”

    Nope. Should pick it up at some point. Keep missing her book signings...dang it.

    She was fairly well known here in SLC "back in the day" as a climber...when she was a younger pup.

    I do have her other tome, which I like. Gettin' some heat for this new one. Funny that Peacock doesn't like it. Wasn't he the Abbey heir apparent?
