The intimacy the trails of the inner canyon provide can take one to an ethereal world. This love brought me focus and direction. It got my butt up at 4:30am. It drove me to hike in 110-degree weather in the dead of the Arizona summer. She became my obsession, my mistress. This book is for anyone who enjoys the outdoors, hiking, nature and thinks time has passed them by. This is a story of getting your butt off the couch and setting hiking the Grand Canyon as a personal goal, no matter what your age!
