"A friendship can be among the most important events in a life, and a way of escape, just as much as writing or travel, from the everyday routine, the sense of failure, the fear of the future." - Graham Greene, Ways of Escape. This autobiographical book is about a great writer and his seasons of travel and writing. What a primer for my dreams. What an invitation. #oregontopatagonia (at Café Jaguar Yuú)

The next time you’re planning a trip leave the guide books behind, forget the weeks of over excessive planning—just pick a place on the map and go. That’s how we found ourselves in the backcountry of Desolation Wilderness earlier this month.
It all started on a typical Friday evening: Wrapping up those last few emails, making final tweaks to photoshop documents, grabbing a beer out of the office fridge. That’s when the text message showed up: “Mountains tomorrow?”
A handful of texts later and we had a plan: Leave the bay around 7am Saturday morning and head towards the Echo Lake trailhead in Desolation Wilderness. Backpacks were packed late that night after returning home from drinks and a few hours of sleep were squeezed in.
We ended up six miles into the backcountry of Desolation Wilderness at Lake Aloha.
That’s all it took: Set forth. Adventures await.
couldn’t have heard a more perfect plan. gabs.
