If there is a heaven for hitchhikers
the road to angel falls in Zion
is the road they dream of
Every morning I wake up to the sight of a lonely New Mexico desert, a landscape that’s worlds away from the apartment I call home. Bummer. The photo is part of Mikael Kennedy’s Odysseus and it’s quite possibly my favorite thing that I own. (Brian Wilson, your 1 of only 100 signed copies of the hand-written sheet music to “Our Prayer” is a close second.) Mikael and I have been buddies for a good while now, and two months ago, while spending the month living in Marfa, TX, Mikael flew down to visit and spend a few days in BBNP. It was our first time working together (I wrote an article for Garden and Gun while he took the photos), but certainly not the last.
While Mikael was down south, he was all smiles, enjoying the nothingness of southwest Texas and getting his head straight for the adventure he’s on now. And holy hell is it an adventure. The project, called Ramblers Bone, involves a sponsorship from Wolverine that allows both Mikael and Sean Sullivan to take a road trip through the western part of these United of States. Not bad.
As promised, Mikael sent me a few pictures from the road (Zion to be exact) with the little ditty above he wrote to accompany them. If you’re craving more – and I’m guessing you are – you can see more photos after the jump and follow the entire adventure here.
