Just last week, under desert snowclouds, photographer Ace Kvale, filmmaker Sinuhe Xavier, and writer Craig Childs took a little excursion into the Greater Canyonlands area. They are amongst my dearest friends, and words can’t begin to describe the respect I have for their work or the way they live their lives. While they were sleeping in caves that have hosted humans since the earliest days of humans in the Southwest, I was sucking in the toxic air of Salt Lake City at the Outdoor Retailer trade show; to say that I wanted to be with them is an understatement. This wallpaper graces my desktop as inspiration for next time, and now it can yours, too.

To those of you who’ve commented about the fire, you make excellent points, except…this crew used a twig cook stove with small fire pan and followed Leave No Trace principles.
