Biographies are studies of someone's life based on cumulative research. Good ones may reveal something, but probably barely scratch the surface of what actually went on. The internet is allowing me to do something VERY different.

The Daze of My Life: Robert Glenn Ketchum, An Autobiography #68:
Daze, #68: As much as I am enjoying the summer backpacking with my friends, my work from those trips only becomes public through prints I exhibit. Few magazines seem interested in stories about a group of crazies wandering at alpine. Because I have already met POWDER magazine, and they DO want to work with me, that association fuels numerous ideas to generate stories, while accomplishing personal work simultaneously. Besides the rebuilding of Pioneer Cabin, POWDER also publishes my Big Mountain and Glacier National Park imagery, and so I design a winter-on-the-road, that I think will create a great amount of new material for both of us. My partner, Vicki Golden (posts #57 & 58), and I, rig the van for maximum warmth and head from LA to Zion National Park. The upper reaches of Zion can be skied when there is snow, but on our visit, there is not enough to do so, so we hike a bit and then move on. Later that day, at the start of a VERY cold evening, we arrive on the rim view road overlooking Bryce Canyon National Park. We are on a high plateau of 8,500ft +. It is clear night with the bottom falling out of the thermometer. We will go below zero before dawn. No surprise to us, we are the only ones here, so I park the van to get direct sun on the motor in the morning, and Vicki and I, bundle up for the night, and have dinner.
