From the OCT/NOV Zephyr: Take it or Leave it: Searching for Silence on the Summit…by Jim Stiles

An Excerpt: “Despite rain and sleet and 80 mph winds that almost swept me off the ridge, I made it to the summit and the perfect vantage point for all those spectacular unobstructed views of the canyon country. The ascent was nothing technical or dramatic; it was simply a long hike above timberline where the air is thin and clear (if also a tad turbulent), to a place I’ve come to regard as my own in a way. It’s difficult not to become territorial about something you love.
In another way, however, it is a meeting place for everyone who has climbed the peak. The summit provides a solitary opportunity to share thoughts and feelings during the moments spent in the brilliant isolation of 12,000 feet.”

  2. Hola a todos, me encanta este blog que descubrí ayer indagando acerca de Kindle.Ayer mismo pedí el Kindle 3 a Amazon, a ver si llega para finales de semana Tengo una duda. He visto que el aparato lleva un diccionario incorporado y parece que se puede cambiar comprando alguno más en Amazon. La cosa es, ¿se puede poner un traductor para al leer novelas en inglés traducir las palabras que se te escapen? ¿O para eso vale con añadirle un diccionar inglés-español?Muchas gracias
