Wrapping Up Our First Winter — Part 1, Ehrenberg

Let the most absent-minded of men be plunged in his deepest reveries—stand that man on his legs, set his feet a-going, and he will infallibly lead you to water, if water there be in all that region. Should you ever be athirst in the great American desert, try this experiment, if your caravan happens to be supplied with a metaphysical professor. Yes, as every one knows, meditation and water are wedded for ever. ~Herman Melville, Moby Dick

The last few weeks of our adventure this winter were spent in Arizona. After our hasty retreat from Joshua Tree National Park, we ended up camped alongside the Colorado River near Ehrenberg for about two weeks. We were able to get on the river in the catarafts a few times and enjoyed a couple of hikes and bike rides but, most of all, we both really loved the serenity that being near water brought to us.
