Bowl of Fire: Southwest

Included in this guide:

 

The VIDEO

Here it is. My love letter to one of my favorite places: The Bowl of Fire. I’ve talked about it for quite some time, and I finally found the determination to finish it.


I started filming this guide on 3/22/20. Yes, this video guide took almost 2 years to complete! After watching it you may wonder why. There’s nothing particularly special or groundbreaking here and it’s not really that clever of an edit. But if you recall, 2 years ago was when everything started to go wrong with the world. Like you, I faced many obstacles and challenges - in addition to some wonderful and unexpected moments. It became increasingly difficult to find the strength or focus to do what used to bring me such joy – creating these video guides. It felt rather pointless.


I had selfish reasons too. I didn’t want to see the Bowl become overrun with people who didn’t care for the land like so many other places in the valley. I imagined myself a bit of a gatekeeper, hoping to preserve this place that had become my new home. But then I realized that the only person being held back by that gate was me: I had become trapped by my inability to move forward. Plenty of people had written about the Bowl in the past and will continue to do so in the future. All I can do is my part to help others realize just how special of a place it is and share what is required to protect it.


Please enjoy my latest video guide “Bowl of Fire: Southwest”, and like and share with others who will join me in keeping this place beautiful and wild.


Thanks for watching.

FUN FACT: The sections of this video where I'm talking to camera were filmed on my birthday in 2020 - the first birthday I've ever been completely alone. Thanks, pandemic!

I really enjoyed your video! It's such a great area to explore. I'm glad you were my guide when we hiked last November. You taught me a lot.

Taking you and Poe out there is one of my favorite memories from The Bowl! I'm so lucky to have family & friends back (physically) in my life.
