Galen Rowell's Signed Book




























A long, long time ago, I used to read a lot of stuff by Galen Rowell. I remember ordering this book from him directly, and having it signed. I followed his career over the years and was disturbed to find out he and his wife died in a plane crash while returning from an adventure. Barbara Rowell was an expert pilot, but she wasn't flying the plane that day. At any rate, they both died in the crash, and the world lost some wonderfully artistic, adventurous people. They have a website that is still being run by family and friends called Mountain Light, where you can buy prints or books. Thom Hogan has a blurb on his wesbite about Galen. Galen shot with Nikon cameras.

This is my second choice for 365 project shot of the day. Taken with a Canon SD800
