Enjoy a look at a day in the park like none other…This video comes from Adventure Blog. Read about my Half Dome climb in Chapter 2 of Camino Sunrise. It was the toughest physical challenge of my life—until I took up long-distance trekking.
A drive today along Highway 1 on the California coast recalled another time at this place, 49 years before. My best friend Craig and I, driving in my old VW bug, discovered Hollywood: a TV crew, a motorcycle, and a scene from Then Came Bronson. I would never have imagined that the old beetle named Clyde, my friend Craig and I would (in 2018) become part of a book I would write, Camino Sunrise.
To readers and authors on Father’s Day:
I may not write a book with my three sons, but I am thankful we have shared other memorable times together, like riding mules to the bottom of the Grand Canyon.
