Okay, so the title is a little dramatic. I was expecting my friend Chelsea and three other people to show up today. They’ll be here for at least a week mostly climbing in Red Rocks Canyon just west of town. She called this afternoon asking if I was busy. Chelsea and her friend Jason had gotten two flats in the Mojave National Preserve. They replaced one and had to drive the other 5 miles on dirt to get to Nipton, CA. It’s about 50 miles. I picked them and the two tires up. We’re safely back at home now getting the tires fixed.
Chelsea is a friend I met while rowing for the University of Nebraska. During the summer season she’s a river/climbing guide in Moab. The rest of the year she travels. There’s a of Chels wearing about 8K in climbing gear after the break.
