Whet Your Wanderlust

The Sages of Topanga Canyon arrived at the beautiful Topanga Library on a dark and stormy night hoping to Whet their Wanderlust. I took them on a visual journey to destinations in my book Lost Angel Walkabout-One Traveler’s Tales.  As I shared highlights of a particular outdoor adventure, I touched lightly on environmental threats to a given region. Mark Twain said, “Travel is fatal to prejudice, bigotry and narrow mindedness.” I expand that thought to include innocence. Even the most jaded individual will become aware of the threats of human intervention to pristine eco-systems through adventure travel.
Upon request, I shared Solutions for Solo Travelers and gave pointers on what to look for in an outfitter detailed in my article Not All Outfittersare Created Equal.
By all accounts everyone left with a new journey brewing.

       Mission accomplished!
