365:365 The beginning, The end . . . 365 seconds
This morning at sunrise (6:06 a.m. MST) I took pictures with the sun and the mountains in my favorite local spot for three hundred and sixty-five seconds. i had hoped to hike something for my finale, but my recovery and knees being what they are, plans change. A major theme of 365, in general, i have learned is that it’s good to make plans, but it’s also good to adjust them.
For a year now, i’ve asked myself three questions, “What picture will i take of myself today? Will i finish this and not miss a day?” and “What things do i do every day – are there other things i should do?”
The college i went to was based on everyone charting their own path by doing projects to go through three stages of academic development (general education, specific focus, and expert level) and forming committees to oversee those projects. You couldn’t pass these stages by taking classes alone and so with each milestone, you had to write, convince, and reflect. So, forgive me for this probably too long farewell to my first 365, it’s in my training to do a retrospective.
A year ago, i wasn’t sure i could do this. i wasn’t sure i had the creativity in me, and i was certain i didn’t have enough photographic acumen. i was tired, lonely, afraid to live here, and mostly i just felt like i was in survival mode, dry and withered. 365 days later i am a different person and while i know that’s true for everyone, i’ve changed significantly. i’m not dry now, i’m back to my juicy self :) i don’t have everything i want in my life, but i’m starting to envision ways to get there again. i’ve forgiven myself for how i ended up here, and made peace with the fact that i can be angry about how that happened and also accept it happened for reason. i have allowed myself to LIVE here and i’ve set big goals. Completing this was one of them. After my first week of 365 last year, i wrote the following list of things i’d like to learn from doing this 365:
•to see myself as others see me – the good, bad and ugly
•to capture this year in which i hope to live big (in another online location I wrote “this is the year i want to live big. i am out from under Assjack and i'm exploring CO and trying to do new things, just for myself. i want to try rock climbing, kill it in my workouts with my trainer, go hiking, get a tattoo, run a mile, cook food so good that people forget to ask if it's gluten free, meet people, date, enjoy my short hair, volunteer, vacation, get a facial, meet my sisters sister, and have people visit me here)
•to add to the list of things i do every day
•to learn more about photography and editing
•to stretch myself creatively
•to smile more
•to be more comfortable when others photograph me
i’m really proud to say i’ve done so much of this . . . i ran a mile, i got a tattoo, and more. i started meditating and trying yoga. i started dating, and have had three great men in my life as a result. i had surgery. i traveled. And my mom and sisters visited Colorado. i also decided to allow myself to have a life here, and a big part of that was joining a choir. (i did not get a facial or go rock climbing . . . ) i’ve dealt with unexpected things too, like bizarre Rocky Mountain weather, and my knees. i’ve gone places and seen more of this gorgeous state. Most of all, i finished extracting my most nightmarish ex from my life, and that allowed me a lot more emotional room to grieve my father.
i started this last year on the eve of the anniversary of my father’s death, and tracking how i felt through this year gave me some structure to make missing him and dealing with my feelings a priority.
And, i have thought about things i do every day (wake up, drink water, brush my teeth, try to have an honest moment about how I feel and why, try to be grateful for at least one thing, and take a picture. Last year, that list stopped after brush teeth!), and things other people do (i got some great answers!). Of course, i also learned a LOT about photography. i’m still mostly a hack, and mostly a point-and-shooter (even in how i use my DSLR), but I have ideas and i can see composition in my head now, and colors, and how to take advantage of light and color sometimes too. i’ve also learned a lot about editing . . . i was remembering recently what it was like a year ago when i had to take 20, 30, 70 shots to get the one i wanted because all i knew how to do was crop a digital photo. i have a lot to learn, but even taking it this far is a revelation. Traditionally, i’ve not shown any aptitude in visual arts. So, to even be able to do this and pick out a few pictures that i like is a big step for me. There are other steps to take in order to improve my ability to get the most out of my equipment and to take the kind of shots i feel are worthy of the ideas and composition i see in my head. Now i know what i don’t know, though
i see myself differently now. Internally, the feeling of accomplishment is huge – the only things that rival this are t
Heading up through Peekaboo
Early Monday morning (4.19.2010), with a light day pack and cameras, we drove down the Hole In The Rock Road a little over 12 miles and turned into Escalante’s “Devil’s Garden”. I had driven the HITR road four times over the last few years for a hike at:
Zebra and Tunnel slot canyons
Davis Gulch (near the end of the road)
Hurricane Wash (where my wife and I backpacked down Coyote Gulch in 2009), and
Egypt Trailhead for a hike to the Golden Cathedral and Neon Canyon.
On each of those trips I had no idea that Devil’s Garden existed. Not until I saw a flickr friend’s photos of Metate Arch in Devil’s Garden, was I even aware of it. So I made sure we had plenty of time to visit it on this trip. It was our first stop Monday morning. We really enjoyed it and had the entire area all to ourselves.
After leaving Devil’s Garden we drove to the Dry Fork Coyote Gulch trailhead to hike down to the bottom of: Peekaboo; Spooky; and Brimstone Canyons. The plan was to make the loop hike, up Peekaboo and down Spooky. I wasn’t sure if my wife would be able to make it up and down this route, so we had discussed all the permutations of up and back hiking or her letting me make a quick run through it if needed.
On the way to the outlet to Peekaboo, we met a lady hiker, whom I will call Karen. Her husband and bunch of hiking club members had already left to do the up Peekaboo; down Spooky route, and then with ropes and equipment, hike some of Brimstone. Karen had opted out and so was content to hike up and down Dry Fork and just enjoy the scenery.
She hiked with us over to the short “climb” up into Peekaboo to give my wife a hand if needed, getting up into that canyon. I had brought leather gloves for us both and a short section of rope and nylon webbing to help my wife. To make this short, my wife got halfway up and we both decided it wasn’t a good idea for her to try to go farther. So, she and Karen worked up a plan to hike the wash together while I hiked the Peekaboo/Spooky route solo.
I enjoyed the hike up Peekaboo. Slickrock hiking, dry, very scenic. Quiet. I found the obvious trail leading across the canyon rim that would run from the upper portion of Peekaboo over to the entry into Spooky. At least when I arrived I hoped I had arrived at Spooky and not the top of Brimstone by mistake. I had grabbed my map, both cameras, and leather gloves, but left my pack with water, candy, GPS, and more maps, with my wife.
So I decided to continue down what I hoped was Spooky and pledged not to go over any pour overs that I couldn’t get back up. A short distance down Spooky I heard voices, which was a relief to me, unless they were coming UP Spooky as it is a narrow passage.
It was Karen’s husband (I will call him Bob) and the hiking club, most of the hikers of my age (old).
Bob and I got along well so we exchanged cameras and I followed his hiking club group on through Spooky back down to the Dry Fork of Coyote. There I thanked the hiking club for their company (at the time I had no idea there were so many of them since the narrow confines of Spooky allowed me to see and interact with only four of the members.
I found my wife and Karen waiting in a cool shade part of Dry Fork and the three of us hiked back up to the trailhead together. I was really pleased to have completed this hike that had been on my “to do” list and that I had such an accommodating, understanding and helpful wife.
My wife and I drove back to Escalante at a slow pace, and met up with our friends from Washington, (Jason and Lusha), that night for dinner.
Road Trip - Utah April 17th - 24th, 2010: My wife and I headed for Southern Utah, just before midnight on Friday the 16th of April (after she got off work at her part time job). We drove straight through to Southern Utah, to take advantage of the good weather forecast early on in our trip. Storms were forecast for later in the trip and in fact we got a pretty good taste of same on Wednesday the 21st.
Here in outline form are the places we visited and hiked:
> Rochester Rock Art Panel near Emery, Utah
> The Moore cutoff road
> Sinbad’s head pictograph panel (we camped under a pinon pine near here)
> Black Dragon Canyon rock art panel (after first taking the wrong turn and doing some interesting four wheel drive travel way up the San Rafael River). Short hike.
> Pictograph Canyon pictographs. Short but interesting hike.
> Drive Hanksville, Torrey, Boulder, to Escalante (check into motel)
> Drive out the Hole In The Rock Road. Visit Devil’s Garden and Metate Arch.
> Drive to Dry Fork of Coyote Gulch. Hike down to Peek-a-boo and Spooky slot canyons. I hiked the loop up Peek-a-boo and down Spooky while my wife hiked with another lady hiker up Dry Fork and then down to the bottom of Spooky.
> Hike Lower Calf Creek Falls (my third hike here and my w
