Helping to save our canyonlands!

If you have ever been to the Canyonlands, you know the beauty is beyond compare and what is evoked stays with you forever. I have been a couple of times. One time we traveled with our mountain bikes, Steve, Jeff, Chris and I, and rode the trails. I am proud to have completed the Slickrock Trail in Moab in a most respectable time, which is not to say I could do it today.

We rented a jeep and drove and walked to the canyonland cathedrals. Jeff played his flute and the birds gathered above. We thought of moving there, but the politics of Utah did not work for us. Also, at the time, they didn't serve wine with lunch, not that the local winery, Arches, was wine you would necessarily want to drink.

Anyway, as we all know, the Bush administration is trying to destroy this area before he leaves office. He hasn't destroyed enough, though the rest of us quake daily with the damage he has done.

If you are interested in supporting Tim DeChristopher, who the Bush administration could, under the guise of calling his actions of civil disobedience, terrorism, destroy, check out this website and how to give to support him and the land we need and love to keep and share.
