I’ve posted every day this month, reliving my recent trip in the Southwest with my friend Ulrich Rossmann. True to my intent I’m now racing towards the Grand Canyon—that’s how it feels—and on to Seligman, Arizona, for our last evening on the road (appropriately, old Route 66). At the time I knew I’d pass through Monument Valley again in less than two weeks—Kathy would meet us in Las Vegas, and after Ulrich left for Berlin we’d reverse my loop back to Oregon, taking in sites she wanted to see. Try not to take anything for granted. I hoped I could spend time in the Valley when I returned.
