After 19 days and 3,633 miles... at Phoenix, Arizona

Sunrise mountain pose from the top of the 4th and final sacred Navajo mountain, Tsoozil the turquoise peak of the South. I hiked it all day yesterday from sunrise til after sunset - 15.5 hours, 23 miles, 8240’ of elevation gain. This entire odyssey was one of the greatest adventures of my life. And as I ready myself to head home I’m quite sure I won’t be coming back the same person. at Mount Taylor (New Mexico)

E is for Eastern sacred Navajo mountain, Sisnaajiní. At 14,345’ it’s the highest peak I’ve ever summited. This great mountain taught me so much the last few days. Can’t wait to tell you all about this odyssey. Only one more pilgrimage to make! 🙏🏽⛰ #GettingThereOneStepAtATime #GettingBetterWithAge #GettingHighInColorado at Blanca Peak

When I’m all alone in bear country I get hardcore. I’m talking Rambo knife and a self-fashioned spear made from my trekking pole and switchblade! ⚔️ #ChicanoInTheWild #ThugLife #Survival at Sangre de Cristo Mountains

Made it to the top of Dibé Nitsaa, the sacred Navajo mountain of the North. 😅 This was the highest and hands down most difficult “hike” I’ve ever done, I use quotes cos I was mainly crawling on all fours. Falling flat on my face, or back, or hugging a rock face with nowhere to go, or completely lost, this was one of the biggest challenges I’ve ever faced in my life. On three occasions I gave up and called it quits, telling myself I couldn’t possibly go any further. Crying uncontrollably out of frustration, fear, self-doubt, pain, rain, it was all too insurmountable. But each time I gave up a group of ravens and sparrows would glide by and lift my spirits. I started the hike to honor family, and with the help of family I made it to the top. There’s a magic to this world that I’ll never be able to fully explain or comprehend. Needless to say, Uncle Matty misses the hell out of these knuckleheads. #Ancestors #Family #SparrowsWorld #RavenTheTrickster at Hesperus, Colorado

Backstage at the #SantaFeOpera with #MarkDanner - one of the greatest American journalists to ever do it, a man whose mentorship shaped so much of my writing and research. We came to see a mind-blowing work of theatre staged by the one and only #PeterSellars or as Mark and I like to refer to him...our old college roommate 😂 Tonight was cosmic! ✨💫🌙 Blessings on blessings on blessings on blessings #LandOfEnchantment #DoctorAtomic at Santa Fe Opera
