I’ve had many great rock-climbing partners over the past forty-two years. Two of the first and best were Ed Foley and Lincoln Hatch. We learned the sport together and shared its great joy: stepping into and joining with mountain beauty. Sometimes we stepped into more than just beauty. That’s where climbing tales begin. Editor Larry Upshaw of Ageless Authors liked my account of a springtime adventure on Tuolumne’s granite. They awarded the story first prize and included it in their upcoming anthology. I’ll let you all know when the tome is actually published.

I’m grateful to Editor Jayne Jaudon for sharing this poem on her YDP site!
Editor Jayne Jaudon shared a small poem of mine on her excellent poetry site. The picture above says more than I can, but I tried: http://www.yourdailypoem.com/listpoem.jsp?poem_id=2969
Editor Irene Toh graciously chose to put my poem First Snow in “Time is a River without Banks”, Red Wolf Journal’s spring 2019 anthology. It’s a beautiful collection and I’m most pleased to have my small poem included.
Editor Richard Loller generously added this Yosemite reminiscence to his Preservation Foundation site. When you take teenagers to mountains where bears reside, they will inevitably meet. Here’s the link:
Editor Ron Harton included both a reminiscence and a poem of mine in this issue of NatureWriting.com. My son Jon’s photos greatly enhance the writing, believe me! I’d be most interested to learn of your Raven encounters, if any! This adventure convinced me that there’s far more to the big birds than meets the eye. Also, I suspect that the famous Raven was teasing Poe. It was a joke, Edgar, not a haunt!
