Armenia Rock Climbing
Six-sided columns ran up basalt ramparts like a stack of Grecian pillars. A dike of perfect gold stairs split a strange, 300-foot tower of gray choss. Snowy mountains with slopes of varicolored grasses fell precipitously to orchards, sedge and clear rivers. Gorges of volcanic rock were cloaked in fog.
Laura Fletcher
Laura Fletcher had a glowing smile and an unforgettable sense of humor to match. She absolutely loved laughing, but it is her encouraging presence and consistent understanding that will be missed most.
TNB: Chris Sharma and The Art of Jeep Maintenance
The scorched desert expanse surrounding Las Vegas smears together into one terrible brown color as Chris Sharma, Dalia Ojeda, Miguel and I whiz along at 90 miles per hour in an old Jeep Grand Cherokee.

With 30 years of pack making under its waist belt, Gregory Packs should know something about knapsacks. Indeed, if recent hype can be trusted, Gregory stands atop the heap. Backpacker, Consumers Digest and National Geographic Adventure all lauded Gregory last year with awards and glowing reviews.
