In the West, we almost all live in boomtowns. The booms leave their mark in a number of ways, not least of which is in the architecture. I write about that for High Country News.

Scenes from the May 10 Recapture Canyon ATV protest ride in Blanding, Utah. San Juan County Commissioner Phil Lyman organized the illegal ride into areas closed to motorized vehicles, rich with archaeological sites and sacred to Native American tribes to protest what he called the jurisdictional creep of federal land agencies. Family members of Cliven Bundy, the scofflaw Nevada rancher, showed up along with other Bundy supporters, many of them armed. 

I tagged along, and wrote about it for High Country News.

Michel de Certeau, Ed Abbey and "rafting" the Grand Canyon via Google Street View

My latest post for highcountrynews, which attempts to weave together a French postmodernist philosopher’s take on the experience of looking down at Manhattan from the World Trade Center, with Google Maps and memories of rafting the Grand Canyon.
