So where are the pens. Uhhhh, wellll, I did look at one or two places along the way between Bryce and Zion and saw one clapped out Eversharp Symphony, I think.
So my only pen companions are those I brought along. Thus far I have used just about everything except the Matador and the Pelikan lapis M101 replica set. I’m sure I’ll get to them.
But, wait, I did come up with a pen, at least an image of a pen, or rather a Waterman’s silver overlay pencil clipped in the jacket pocket (watch that clip) of an early naturalist in Zion Canyon. He was, to my dismay, unidentified, but clearly a man of taste and distinction in the wilderness.
