Superior Trail | Schroeder, MN | 2012

Bridging another equinox
Time has fallen in heaps of color
Rising stark on the other side
Above the scattered floor

Stampede Trail | Healy, Alaska | July 2012

“The name for the Chena River in Fairbanks is derived from the Tanana Athabascan name Ch’eno’. In this case the literal meaning is quite interesting.
