GRTE – Teton Traverse
My son Adley and I did a backpacking traverse of the Grand Tetons in Wyoming in 2013. Two Iranian friends came with us and it was fun to learn about Iran over the days of conversation. Mehdi, who is a professor of engineering at Duke University in North Carolina, is someone I met in a previous Grand Canyon hike and we had stayed in touch. We all signed the pigeon at the end of the hike. The device pictured was the alcohol stove (with its blue flame made with an empty pop can ) I brought along — very lightweight but plenty hot for boiling water. I created a red postmark to mimic the heat and just caught the edge of the painting.
