Well, I mean, why not? Why in the only everloving world we’ve ever known the hell not?

A friend of mine* owns half of an entire mountain with the lava plug of an old volcanic cone at the summit. (No, not shown in photo.) He and I are going to make a “run for the cone” on some sort of two-wheel all-terrain contraption that should carry both of us. At the top of this mountain is supposed to be an ancient UFO landing site and lots of petroglyphs. Lord, I love New Mexico. This will be extremely dangerous and crazy. We are mighty warriors!

* You may think the title refers to following him. Not so. He’s following, too.

John Hamilton Farr lives in Taos, New Mexico, U.S.A. with his classical pianist wife. “Possibly the only place I can get away with this,” he says. As New York Times best-selling author James C. Moore (Bush’s Brain) put it in a review of John’s first book, Buffalo Lights is the work of a man attuned to the world who sees it differently than you and I and writes about it with a language and a vision of life that is impossible to ignore.” John is the author of BUFFALO LIGHTS, TAOS SOUL, ANOTHER DAY IN PARADISE, and THE HELEN CHRONICLES. He has been publishing online since 1996 (Zoo Zone, Farr Site, MacFaust, GRACK!, FarrFeed) and blogs regularly here at JHFARR.COM.

      Some things just have to be done! There are also hundreds of elk on this mountain, which happens to be the same place our 500-year-old piñon firewood comes from. I’ve been there once. There was even talk of mummies, but I didn’t find any.
