I spent the night in the canyon on the first night of my trip home from Dallas to California. After a year in the Big D, the Gorge was a striking and welcome relief. I have been backpacking in some of the most remote mountains in America, but I have never felt so isolated as when I was in the canyon. Not only was I the only person anywhere near the canyon, but most people don't even know the Gorge exists!
"So I was sitting in my cubicle today, and I realized, ever since I started working, every single day of my life has been worse than the day before it. So that means that every single day that you see me, that's on the worst day of my life."
