Visiting the Desert for the Pagan Holidays (and Coyote, too)

In less than 8 hours, I will be on a plane to Arizona, for a week-long vacation.

I have traveled to many different ecosystems in the past 10-12 years (tropical, rainy/British, windy tundra, forest, mountains, beaches, oceans, rivers, creeks, etc.), but I have never been to a true desert.

 I have packed my rattle and some offerings in between my clothes (too full a suitcase!), and I am so ecstatic that I can't sleep. I want to hike every day, see the southern tip of the Grand Canyon, visit different museums, sit under a clear night sky full of the stars and Milky Way, dance in the Halloween/Samhain/Dia de los Muertos parades.

And I want to hear coyotes howl.

I have worked with Coyote for many years. He began as a silent totem-like animal guide on Journeys (back in 2002) and evolved into a wonderfully sarcastic human-coyote shape-changer (with whom I enjoy many hilarious conversations).

But I have never seen a coyote in real life, a constant joke from the Old Man himself.

We'll see who gets the last laugh, as I have a full week to chase Him down!

Stay tuned as I update my blog with photos from my vacation, along with stories of Synchronicity and Shamanism!
