when you can't sleep

take pictures of trees. joshua trees and think of slot canyons gone by...
charly did The Subway slot canyon hike with us when she was 5. it is over 10 miles and she did most of it on her own. the rappel into the water part was freezing so, after getting her down the rock andrew put her on his shoulders so she would not have to swim. his chest was constricted from the cold water as he walked through. charly screamed "my feet are touching the water!" as he carried her. andrew often silently carries the kids through times in their lives, barely breathing himself, so all they feel is a bit of cold on their feet. that is a good dad.
