Adventures 1st

Temperature is rising, spring is dying, dust is in the air, I find myself humming Hot Town …. Summer in the City …. the back of my neck getting dirty n gritty …. I know it’s time to start exploring new cooling spots for this summer 🙂

John Muir once said “of all the paths you take in life, make sure a few of them are dirt”. I listened. Whereas most of his dirt paths were in the green vegetation of California, mine are in the Middle Eastern deserts. Nonetheless, the outcomes are one; endless joy and many discoveries; the best components of an adventure 🙂

“The view which the Mujib represents is very striking … the valley looks like a deep chasm formed by some convulsion of the earth into which there seems no possibility of descending to the bottom.” (J.L. Burckhardt, 1812) quoted in “Trekking and Canyoning in the Jordanian Dead Sea Rift” by Itai Haviv
