About                                              

Gravel Shrines is the third piece in a growing series of pieces related to the concept of shrines. Each of these pieces has to do in some way or another, with the environment, be it a specific place, or shrines, or a more abstract idea. This piece follows the later, having much to do with a summation of experiences had hiking various regions of Western North Carolina. Gravel Shrines was written for my good friends Francesca Ferrara, David Angelo, Noah Rosen, and Jane Soh.
