I spotted this book in the general store at the Ranch at Furnace Creek in Death Valley. One day in the future, I will read this book to my daughter and teach her that princesses absolutely do wear hiking boots, with pink hiking socks, of course.
For your weekend viewing pleasure, here are three adventure slide shows definitely worth clicking through!

For your weekend reading pleasure, here are links to three articles I’ve found thought-proving this week.
“If it was easy to make a living doing what you love, everyone would do it,” she writes.
She doesn’t dissuade seekers and schemers from following their dreams. She just encourages them to think hard and creatively about ways they can make money, while pursuing their dream.
“Having the determination and ingenuity to find the intersection of your passion and your income is where most people fail,” she writes. Or, she writes, it’s always a work in progress.
If there’s a leap you’ve been meaning to take in your life, sign up for Grant’s e-mails. They seem to arrive in my in-box every time I need a gentle kick in the pants.
I’ll take the challenge to stop buying vegetable broth, canned beans, and hummus, and prepare my own. What changes are you making to eat healthier and support the environment?
Here’s an excerpt from The Bee:
One online lottery will be held in early April at recreation.gov to acquire permits for the 2012 season, scheduled for May 25 to Oct. 8. (Those dates could change depending on conditions.)
The lottery replaces a first-come, first-served system that was plagued by scalpers who created automated programs to snap up permits the instant they became available, then sold them on the Internet for several times their value.
Lottery applications will be accepted during March at recreation.gov or by phone at (877) 444-6777. Applicants will then receive an email in early April notifying them of the lottery results, or they can get them online or by phone.
