Photography compilation by Scott Wright Photography
Music by Daniel Dahl-Bredine
These photos were taken at two outdoor wilderness survival camps, Winter Count in Arizona, and Rabbitstick in Idaho. Information on these events can be found at backtracks.net . I met Andrew there and this video compilation is the result of his singer/songwriting talents combined with the activities and natural beauty I saw while attending. I found the people involved to be from varying backgrounds but all with a deep love and respect for Nature, and the Earth, in a very positive and encouraging way. It is a well run and organized event, and I hope that some of that feeling might come through in these photos, and especially in Andrews music and lyrics. Enjoy!!! Scott Wright
Another little clip from Chasing a Different Carrot - " Karen and I attended Winter Count in February. We camped out for five nights (just west of the town of Maricopa) with hundreds of folks who were highly interested in learning and teaching a durable set of skills". One of the classes they took was on how to utilize an entire animal for food and projects.
Here is the address of a website that contains some great photos compiled by Joshua Sage at Winter Count 2011 -
We haven't had this address before, so take a look. There are some great new views that are sure to get you excited about coming to Winter Count again this year.
Take a minute and get to know what this great event is all about. If you've been before, here's a chance to rekindle that flame that was ignited at your last event, and help you start making plans to join us again this year in the Sonoran Desert of Arizona to once again learn the old ways.
