The ancient eavesdropper


During the summer of 2006, I took this photo and was inspired to write many poems (including this one) while on a 21 day backcountry outing as a Montana Conservation Corps crew member, working long days blazing miles of new pack trails in the Scapegoat Wilderness outside Lincoln, Montana. Our crew, which we affectionately named Gang Green, trekked 25 miles into the middle of pristine, sub-alpine (~7,000 feet) forest and were totally disconnected from the outside world. This was a richly therapeutic and refreshing experience where you are at the mercy of nature, rising with the sun and going to bed with the sun, bathing with the mosquitoes in the creek, washing clothes in your hardhat, drinking cold mountain water and cooking vittles over fires under a crisp canopy of stars. This is the path of least resistance for me…it makes you work, but you are so much more alive…
