Devils Garden/Angels Landing —2015

Two extraordinary hikes in Southern Utah during the summer of 2015 inspired this music.

Devils Garden Trail, Arches National Park: 107 degrees Fahrenheit, scrambling on slickrock and along ledges to view awe-inspiring natural stone arches. Angels Landing Trail, Zion National Park: hiking across a narrow sandstone ridge with dizzying dropoffs, clinging to support chains while ascending to the lofty perch of Angels Landing. Special thanks to the RoseWind Duo, Cliff Leaman, alto sax and Scott Herring, marimba, for whom this work was composed, and to whom it is dedicated.
