It's great fun to put adventure into my stories, I've discovered. I can armchair visit some of the more dangerous places I write about.
And I can actually go to some of the exciting destinations I've heard about such as the Antelope Canyons near Page AZ. Climbing down into those slot canyons and taking unbelievable photographs were true adventures. I was thrilled with my pictures but shocked that a few years ago over a dozen tourists died in the same canyon during a flash flood. The canyon could be part of an adventure story, I think. Looking at the walls was like being in another dimension, like viewing something out of science fiction. I'm glad I traveled there. The site reminded me of the Raiders of the Lost Ark.
I love adventure.
