I’m trying to think of something to say about my friend Chuck Bowden—in my opinion the greatest U.S. nonfiction writer of his generation—who died in his sleep yesterday afternoon.
My friend Barry Graham has these words on the passing of one of our best writers.
You leave the same impression
Of something beautiful, but annihilating.

Not the greatest picture, but this big raptor (juvenile bald eagle?) landed right in front of me on my coffee run this morning, strolled around a bit, then took off again. I love these birds. #birds #raptor #eagle #montana
It wasn’t just mountain bikes passing me on the trail today…. #hiking #horses #trails #montana #getoutside (at Rattlesnake National Recreation Area)
North Fork Adventure Mobile. I liked the Belize license plates. #adventuremobile #landrover #getoutside #gonorth #montana
Chromier than I probably prefer, but still damn cool. Love that paint job.

"I have never known anything like the suddenness of this change. Compare it with the experience of flying from London and landing in Bombay — from freezing winter to eighty-degree heat — at two in the morning in January. Even a change as dramatic as that is gradual: a nine-hour flight; a long and slow descent; taxiing round the airport to the gate; immigration, baggage claim, leaving the terminal. Typically it’s an hour and a half before you find yourself out in the Indian night with its smell of wood smoke and the sense of vast numbers of people still asleep. Whereas here, one moment we were traveling at 140 mph and the next we had stopped, the hatch opened and we had entered another world with its own rules, cultures, norms and purposes." — Geoff Dyer
