What: path

Columbia University, New York City, October 2015

Does This Path Have a Heart?

Before you embark on any path ask the question: Does this path have a heart? If the answer is no, you will know it, and then you must choose another path. The trouble is nobody asks the question; and when a man finally realizes that he has taken a path without a heart, the path is ready to kill him. At that point very few men can stop to deliberate, and leave the path.

Kaibab Trail, Grand Canyon, Arizona, US, July 2005

The sun was hot, the path was long, steep, craggy and dusty. A time to drink lots of water and also eat lots of junk food to prevent hyponatremia (Grand Canyon national park summer hiking guide.).

Items carried: Two gallons of water, big bag of crisps, trail mix, beef jerky, some fruit, bread, tuna, jar of peanut butter, backpack, sleeping bag, tent, camera with one lens, two CF (Compact Flash) cards, two spare batteries, flash-light, swiss army knife, map, the clothes on my body.
