Hi. I’m Gary Brown. This is my blog…
I grew up in God’s country. A little bit of Colorado and a lot of Southern Utah. I wrote my Master’s thesis on Edward Abbey and H.D. Thoreau because I related deeply to the way they feel about their respective geographic centers and the way they felt about wildness and its importance to the world. Edward Abbey’s geographic center was pretty darn close to my own. I’ve since lived in Northern California, Boise, ID, and Portland, OR. Some mighty fine places. But my Utah home kept calling me back.
I have a wife and three boys and today we live so close to some of the best rock climbing in the world that I feel embarassed I haven’t climbed seriously in years. These days I enjoy riding my mtn bike right out of my driveway to Lambert Park, Hog Hollow or Corner Canyon. We live just over the mountain from Snowbird and Alta and spend our winter weekends there. I’m a former Salmon River guide and we love to run rivers, particularly in my homebuilt wooden dory.
Oh, and in spite of being very green in my politics and lifestyle, I have a life-long love affair with dirt bikes and the sport of motocross.
I work… a lot… for a technology company that has as much to do with hastening the Internet age as anyone. I run a large global website for said company and as such I’m supposed to be somewhat of an expert in all things web. I faithfully read a number of blogs on a regular basis and I just thought it was time I did my own. Let me know what you think some time.
