From Erin Robertson comes this pic of her tried-and-true Deep Wild-decorated water bottle perched precariously in Aksu Canyon, in the Aksu-Zhabagly Nature Reserve in Kazakhstan. Erin, a contributor to Deep Wild 2021, was recently in Kazakhstan at the invitation of the U.S. consulate, teaching writing classes to teens, after which she bravely hit the trail.

By sending us this picture, Erin has earned a one-year subscription to Deep Wild Journal. Send us your pic of Deep Wild in the wild–either of the book itself or of the sticker on some gear.
