Bucket List

Today marks the half way point of my seasonal agreement here in Zion. I have 66 days to go. Its been good but its getting hot!

The movie, "Bucket List" is one of my favorite. Besides having great actors, Morgan Freeman and Jack Nicholson, the theme is intriguing. What are the things you really want to do or accomplish before you kick the bucket...die?
You can read their discussion at the above link.

One thing I would love to do is drive, bike and walk down Hwy 101 in California and see the Redwoods.

I started googling it this morning. It makes me want to get started today.
But, hold on. Like Rainmaker always tells me, One adventure at a time.

I took this video of a giant cottonwood tree here in Zion. I know its no way as big as a Redwood, but it must be a couple hundred years old. It a matriarch of the canyon, no doubt birthing many cottonwoods. There must have been dramas unfolded beneath her gnarled branches.

The shade and beauty are magnificent. May her life be long.

  2. I went to Redwoods last year. It was gorgeous. I wish I could have spent a whole week up there!
