Abbey Smith on the Hueco Rock Ranch Celebration · July 26, 2012

AAC friend Abbey Smith wrote to us in response to our One Day Member Drive to Celebrate the Hueco Rock Ranch:

“When I think of “home” I think of the Hueco Rock Ranch. The place of peace, where I am whole. Desert sunshine. Majestic boulders. Starry nights. Blissful solitude. The place where I struggle, learn, grow and connect with myself, friends and nature. The memories here follow me. Breaking my boundaries on highballs. Dancing by bonfires. Claiming the Texas Hold’em poker pot. Prolific family feasts. Lots of laughter. This place is my whole world complete. Thanks to the American Alpine Club and the Access Fund, the Hueco Rock Ranch continues to remain. The place where my heart will stay.”

Help us. Support the Club’s efforts by Joining or Renewing TODAY!
