Article: Tales of Tricks by the God I'itoi on Baboquivari Peak, Arizona
You know.. I'm 55 and I feel pretty reverent about the crags and peaks now days. I also respect out native American cultures (I'm 1/8 Ojibwe) and environment more so than ever. But! There was a time that I too rolled giant rocks off cliffs and snorted a line or three. Until I grew older I didn't understand our responsibility's to our mother earth as I do now. This narrative is really a story of growing up. Unfortunately, for one of the cast, that act didn't get to go full circle. Or maybe it did. Maybe Michael has joined the spirits that preside over Baboquivari. There's many stories of lost souls finding solitude amongst those spirits that preceded them. I hope that this is one of them.
