Friday Inspiration 283

This is not new, but I just found out about the “Magic Roundabout” (which is SEVEN roundabouts in one) while reading The 99 Percent Invisible City last week and am obsessed (video)

 

(Here’s a link to the 99 Percent Invisible City book as well)

The teaser for Season 2 of Ted Lasso (beginning July 23) is here

The American Alpine Club just announced a new grant called the Catalyst Grant for underrepresented climbers (including but not limited to BIPOC, LGBTQ+, and climbers with seen and unseen disabilities)—super-cool for anyone looking to get some funding for a big project or a road trip somewhere.

The Freeflow Institute still has a few spots open on its Green River writing workshop with Heather Hansman (author of the book Downriver: Into the Future of Water in the West, which is set on the Green River) in June.

Speaking of the desert: I am about halfway through this wonderful, very short book of brief essays by Ellen Meloy (upon recommendation from my wife, Hilary) and it is just goddamn delightful

I appreciate that there are people who tackle important topics like this: How are there always crumbs in the silverware drawer holder?

I wrote a new hiking guidebook for Rocky Mountain National Park, and it comes out May 1(!). If you’d like to pre-order it, here are a few links to do so through Bookshop, Tattered Cover, and Amazon.

Thanks for reading.
