Horace Sykes is back from his five day vacation. We were also occupied with both Highway #2 and choosing which repeats to use or pursue for our upcoming show next April at the Museum of History and Industry here in Seattle.

Last summer we followed Horace Sykes up the switchbacks of Walter's Wiggles in the Refrigerator Canyon from the floor of Zion National Park's main canyon to this ledge -I believe. Here he made the decision - apparently - not to proceed over the precipitously exposed - although chained too - trek to Angels Landing. Here he looked down - if I am right - on the floor of the valley he had left below. As the name suggests the narrow Refrigerator Canyon was consistently cooler. Is the name also a reference to the blood of those natural cowards - like myself - who prefer the safety of flat heat. From this prospect to continue to Angels Landing would have meant turning right. So far I've found no slides of Horace heading in that direction. But note the little flowers in the foreground. A Sykes signature.
