A Morning at the Secret Lake

    Newer Older

    The book is "Officially" out

    I understand warehouses are filling up and orders should be shipping any time! For sure, I stayed up all night signing things for the pre-orders that went through this site. My signatures are all real... and not fake stamps like so many others. I walked into a Barnes & Noble tonight here in New York to see if they had my book yet... They say any minute! But, on the way out, I saw Alton Brown's cookbook that was an "Autographed Copy". It was so obviously a stamp that was infused into the jacket! Anyway, I am sorry if they got a little messy around 6 AM, but at least you know they are real! I wanted to make sure we got these out to everyone ASAP... it's important to you, I know, so it's important to me.

    If you have the book already, why not pop over to Amazon and give the book a review? We now live in a world that is powered by people like you and your opinions -- and I would appreciate that very much!

    Daily Photo: A Morning at the Secret Lake
    This was shot in the Andes of Southern Argentina just near the border of Chile.

    I spent several hours of hiking in the dark just so I could get to this spot at sunrise. All the darkness in the lower half is the shadow of the mountain behind me as the morning sun rose above it. I was so thirsty from the hike, and had not brought any water with me. Looking on Google Earth beforehand, I knew there was a lake up here and I could fill up… so I got down on my hands and knees and drank like a horse… oh boy that was some good fresh water… You can see my little footprints in the snow there on the left.

      Congratulations on the book! that must be exciting. And this scene is so lovely - much better than the impending rain when I was there at that very lake (it was rainy and cloudy for all but a few hours of the four days I spent around there and Cerro Torre).
