With mixed emotions, I bid farewell to Earth Odyssey, with this, my final issue.

Over the course of publishing Earth Odyssey, almost all of the reader comments have been positive. During this process, I have learned three valuable lessons.

1. Loyal, dedicated readers do not translate into advertisers, who are needed to pay the bills.

2. More people than I ever realized expect everything from a publication for nothing. For some reason, if you have a printed product, many people feel entitled to space in your publication without any monetary contribution on their part.

The Verde River: Jewel of the Southwest

Saturday, a cold windy overcast February day, finds eight of us hiking along the upper Verde River. Now is the brown season—the green season begins in May—and it is beautiful.

Four juvenile and two mature eagles are circling. A red-tail hawk cries and flees; native fish flash for cover. On a quiet terrace overlooking the river, we discover a rock art panel and an ancient campsite where Apache and Yavapai people once lived in harmony with the seasonal rhythms.

Don't move a mussel–now it's the law: New regulations for boaters go into effect

Arizona has passed legislation requiring boaters to follow “clean, drain and dry” practices as a part of responsible boating at lakes known to have quagga mussels.  Quagga mussels were first discovered in Arizona waters in Lake Mead in January 2007. A single adult quagga mussel can produce a half-million larvae in a single year. Since being introduced at Mead, likely from being accidentally transported on a boat put into the lake, these prolific invaders have spread rapidly.

Earth Day Turns 40

Earth Day, conceived by Wisconsin Senator Gaylord Nelson, began 40 years ago as a national teach-in focused on the environment.  Nelson, an environmental activist, was outraged by the devastation caused by a horrific oil spill off the California Coast and by Washington’s political inertia in dealing with the environmental disaster.

All aboard the Grand Canyon Railway: The journey is the destination

A full-fledged Wild West “shootout” goes down in a nearby arena just prior to morning departure—something about there not being enough room in town for the both of them.  A cowboy buffet complete with Cheerios® and Lucky Charms® attempts to imitate the old eateries of America’s Highway, Route 66.

A tale about a castle that isn't

At the other end of the spectrum from the mining shanties of Oatman (see March issue of Earth Odyssey) is Scotty’s Castle, which is neither a castle nor did it belong to Walter “Scotty” Scott. Located in Grapevine Canyon in Death Valley National Monument, Scotty’s Castle is a Spanish-style villa built by Albert Johnson, a business tycoon from Chicago.

Keeping it real with the Elephant Seal

When traveling the length of California, perhaps the most efficient method is Interstate 5, which traverses the state via an inland route. But for sightseers unconcerned with efficiency, the traffic jams of Los Angeles and Sacramento are no contest for the famous Big Sur Highway, otherwise known as Route 1 between San Luis Obispo and Monterrey.

The People of Mollamarka: Preserving Old Ways in the Peruvian Andes

Download this article in pdf: The_People_of_Mollamarka_EO-0310.pdf

The main thoroughfare heading east of Cusco soon empties out onto dirt, quickly becoming a winding road, hugging the side of never-ending mountains going higher with each breath-taking turn. After about 60 miles—and four hours later—you finally come to the small town of Paucartambo, known for its Festival of the Virgin of Carmen, the syncretic celebration of pre-Colombian Andean rites and the town’s Catholic patron saint, which draws throngs of revelers in mid-July.
