Life starts all over again when it gets crisp in the fall. ― F. Scott Fitzgerald

The fall is here which always leads me to thinking about spending time in the SW desert with this guy, Alf Randell.  Every year for the last 5 he has been a staple as consistent as the desert itself.  No pilgrimage to Indian Creek would be what it is without him there to send some difficult obscure climbs, offer his opinion on many a controversial issue and eat any leftovers around.  Photo:  Garrett Grove
