dispatch from phoenix

hello from phoenix!

i should be doing something productive, like hopping in the shower or packing clothes for the big hike, but i'm just not that motivated yet. instead, i woke up obscenely early (by phoenix standards) after getting to bed ridiculously late (by columbia standards), finished reading a book (yes- a book! i actually had time to plow through all 400 pages of a carl hiaasen novel, strip tease, which was excellent, by the way), and have spent the last 20 minutes screwing around on the internet....woo-hoo!

so this is what having free time feels like, eh?

i'm leaving later this morning for seligman, possibly stopping at my favorite ghost town (jerome) on the way, and at this time tomorrow, i should be starting the hike into havasupai for three days of exercise (shhh...don't tell anyone how out of shape i am), cavorting in waterfalls, and possibly (hopefully) a side trip to the colorado river.*

you can have your fancy resorts/spas, cocktails and shopping- this is my idea of a relaxing vacation.

*of course, i'll bore you with pictures of all of the above as soon as i get back to south carolina
