Goodbye Deep Springs

Playa Trail

Five years and four months since we arrived from New Mexico, the rodeo’s over. I’ll dearly miss the geology, the night skies, the quiet, the black toads, the mostly-dry lake that always feels like the center of the universe, the unpredictable flower blooms, the winter fog, the views. And I’ll miss many excellent students, staff and faculty at Deep Springs College. But it’s time to move on. By the time you read this, we’ll be headed north for Washington and new landscapes. Washington is the only remaining western state in which I have not either lived, worked or spent serious time. It’ll take time to settle in, but I’m looking forward to new terrain. At least we’ll be east of the Cascades and still in the rain shadow! In the mean time, I still have quite a backlog of desert images to share.

  1. Hi Jackson! Washington is beautiful. Look for The Enchantments, almost any hike in the Teanaway drainage, don’t miss the glissade down MT Ellinor in the spring or the spectacular terrain in the North Cascades National Park. Good luck, Marty

    • Thanks, Marty! Yeah, I definitely want to look at the Teanaway, it’s pretty close to Yakima and looks interesting and maybe less crowded than many nearby areas. And I’m definitely looking forward to a chance to head up north. Thanks for dropping by!
