Camp Week Gallery: Happy Birthday, River Phoenix

The absurdly talented and beautiful River Phoenix would have been 31 today. Stand By Me is one of my very favorite movies of all time, and, appropriately enough for our theme week, it’s about camping. In fact, it turns out several of River’s characters made their beds on the dirt — so here some photos of the dearly-missed actor out in the wild.
