FALL TOUR KICKOFF: The Desert by Luke Mehall, a dirtbag climbing book Thursday, August 15th, 7:00 p.m. Townie Books 414 Elk Ave. Crested Butte, Colorado. The Desert begins with Mehall's first trip to The Desert, a visit to Indian Creek in 1999, and chronicles nearly two decades of experiences. Over time, the author grows from thinking that the red-rock desert of the Colorado Plateau is just another stop along the way, to finding himself more and more at home there. The Desert is a definitive, independently published account of a dirtbag climber searching for love, passion, fresh air, and an escape from the electronic hyperconnectedness of the modern world.
