Desert Solitaire

“I overheard a park ranger standing nearby say a few words about a place called Havasu, or Havasupai. A branch, it seemed, of the Grand Canyon. What I heard made me think that I should see Havasu immediately, before something went wrong somewhere. My friends say they would wait. So I went down into Havasu – fourteen miles by trail – and  looked things over. When I returned five weeks later I discovered that the others had gone on to Los Angeles without me.”      –Edward Abbey, 1968, Desert Solitaire
