Four Corners - The Book
One of my most read stories through the years has been about a trip I took to San Francisco. This past week I got the following e-mail" "Dear Dan: Just wanted to let you know I randomly found your San Francisco page by searching for documents with the words: beach, sex, funny, baseball, and redwood. I do not really know why I was searching or why I'm writing to tell you. But I was amused by your piece and especially your comments about my fellow Marin County residents.... May you randomly stumble upon something good yourself." (signed Joe)
Nicole Savage is another good San Francisco buddy. Her San Francisco Heart is always a worthy journey. She even has added a journal which I really like.
In my Thomas Merton site there is a photojournal of a visit by me to the Abbey of Gethsemane near New Haven, Kentucky. Check out the photographs to Thomas Merton's gravesite.

ANOTHER TRAVEL WRITER WHO WILL NOT BORE YOU !!!!!
"I am taken by the primeval charm and fascination of the simple mysteries: fire, building in mud, rain, sunlight, the smell of greasewood and live oak after a cloudburst, the luxury of a sleeping hound." Edward Abbey - Confessions of a Barbarian (p.125)
Edward Abbey is the author of Desert Solitaire, one of the great travel books of all time.
