Gila Hikes tramway wellness humor Ed Abbey help

From the Castillian Spanish. Meaning vessel or tank                      

Mountain canyons here in the Desert Soutwest are often subject
to violent flash floods. Floodwaters that can carve out monolithic
rock basins. These tinajas hold water during drought times.  

Given enough luck, a  tinaja  can rarely be found that is severely
infested with nude females. Of varying shapes and sizes.  

A tinaja quest is simply a search for tinajas.  The all time grand
champion tinaja questor of all times was Ed Abbey. Who wrote
numerous books on them during his lifetime. 

This library page holds info on the Mount Graham Aerial Tramway,
my Gila Valley Day Hikes, some Wellness tutorials and tools, a
number of humor pieces, access to Ed  Abbey books, and whatever
else off-the-wall that may crop up from time to time.

Most library files require an Adobe Acrobat 4.0  plug in for online
viewing. Offline, these may be accessed by an Acrobat Reader or
an eBook Reader or any other .PDF accepting program.

"As an M.D. who believes that the health of Americans has not measurably
improved in spite of our ballyhooed successes in the technology of medicine,
I am convinced that lifestyle is the key to augmenting health. Don Lancaster's
approach, as outlined in "Don't Get Sick," is a masterpiece of incisive wisdom
and sound advice. If people implemented his suggestions, their well-being would
skyrocket and their need for expensive drugs and surgery would plummet.

Mr. Lancaster knows the path to health. Follow it."     --  Dr. Kevin Pezzi
