    Companion forum thread to: Searching for the Light

    After the year of darkness that was 2020, I needed to walk in the light of the Mojave desert.

    Thank you for the awesome trip report, and inspiring photos. New York Mountain is a tough climb, and it was the death of one very experienced climber I knew. You were wise to bail.

    An amazing journey that I would never have pieced together. Beautiful, expressive writing. And I loved your burrito trails lessons.

    I grew up in various parts of the Mojave, running wild through the desert, coming home in time for dinner – mostly. My heart will always be there, even if I live far away in a much different setting. And yes, the light is very special.

    Thank you.

    Dang automagic spelling manglers. Substitute “burro” for “burrito” above.

    Thanks Rex – I think all of us have learned lessons from burritos also

    When stationed in 29 Palms with the Marine Corps, I did a lot of Mojave hiking, but usually with at least 100 lbs of gear. I’ve always wondered if it would be worth a return to that desert with my current setup and priorities to rewrite my own story in that desert. Thanks for this piece!

    Great Trip Report Drew !    What a rugged, unforgiving, beautiful landscape where only the most adept survive.  I loved the look the fox gave you as he slank into desert.  Thank you for sharing your challenging route and great experiences.
