Kelly Kane’s Pick of the Week: Oasis

“We’ve outrun hailstorms in Texas; dodged roadside deer, sheep, and cattle; been lost on California mountain roads at night; crossed paths with bears in Maryland; driven hundreds of miles out of our way to get around floods in Missouri; sweated out a desert sandstorm; been stopped by a herd of javelinas in Sedona; and watched a piece of bridge fall off in Arkansas just as we were going across it.” — Patrick Saunders, “Taking to the Road” (June-July 2018 PleinAir Magazine)
