a town of many faces #Seattle
“The myth of wilderness … is that we can somehow leave nature untouched by our passage. By now it should be clear that this for the most part is an illusion. If living in history means that we cannot help leaving marks on a fallen world, then the dilemma we face is to decide what kinds of marks we wish to leave. In the broadest sense, wilderness teaches us to ask whether the Other must always bend to our will, and, if not, under what circumstances should it be allowed to flourish without our intervention.” – #WilliamCronon, from “The Trouble with Wilderness,” which if you haven’t read, you should. 📷: this weekend's Maple Pass snowy larch adventure. #actonclimate #pnwonderland #canon7D
Hayden and Inge, I didn't know you, but so many have held you as guiding stars. Your passing is really hitting home for me, and it truly drives introspection into what I hope to gain from living my choices in the mountains, what I have to lose, and what's too much to ask. I hope I and others can live your message of truth, humility, and honesty to its fullest.
snow! bright yellow larches! pointy cascades! a beautiful day in the mountains, *right* between two of my favorite seasons. (did i mention the SNOW) #pnwonderland
blown away by @sarahjarosz and friends tonight, at none other than the @tractortavern
Saturday's fantastic evening here in Seattle with @broscomatose @thelilsmokies and @mipsomusic. Each of their sets were killer, but seeing them all play together was so amazing.
