Views of Harvard

Friday, October 16th, 2009

During my trip to New England last week, I was able to visit Harvard University. I had not been back to my alma mater since my final graduation there in 1992. Of course I enjoyed plenty of nostalgia, which I generously shared with my wife. I thought I’d share a bit with you, through some […]

Scenes from Rockport, Massachusetts

Tuesday, October 13th, 2009

Here are a few photos from one of my favorite places in the world, Rockport, Massachusetts. The red fishing shack in the center of these photos is Motif #1, one of the most photographed, painted, and drawn structures in the world. This is actually the second Motif #1, since the original was destroyed in the […]

Different Places and Their Distinctive Smells

Friday, August 28th, 2009

Have you ever noticed how different places have different and distinctive smells? I expect you have, especially if you’ve visited a seaside community on vacation. Even before you can hear the waves crashing on the beach or the seagulls calling, you can smell the change in the air, the hint of brine that grows ever […]

Visiting Montana State University

Thursday, August 27th, 2009

Last week I visited Montana State University along with my son. He is interested in attending film school for college, and Montana State has a well-regarded program in film, television, and theatre. Not surprisingly, one of the most attractive features of Montana State is its location in Bozeman, a delightful town with fantastic winter sports […]

Hike to Lava Lake

Tuesday, August 25th, 2009

During our recent trip to Montana, my family and I, along with several friends, hiked to Lava Lake. This 5.5 mile hike involved a substantial climb (1600 ft) along a fast-moving creek. The forest was dense and lush. The trailhead is about a half-hour south of Bozeman, on the edge of the Lee Metcalf Wilderness. […]

How Things Change . . .

Saturday, August 22nd, 2009

Yesterday I put up a photo of my son, Nathan, and me at the beginning of our first backpacking trip together. I believe that picture was taken in the summer of 2000. Here’s another look at that photo.
We were at the trailhead for the Sherman Lakes trail out of Mammoth Lakes in California. It was […]

Hiking in Montana

Thursday, August 20th, 2009

Here are a couple of photos from a hike that my wife and I took while on vacation in Montana. The hike was in Flathead National Forest, not far from Swan Lake.

It was certainly nice of somebody to string that rope across the log bridge.

Some wild turkeys on a fence.  I think these are Merriam’s […]

More Than Birds in Florida

Thursday, March 12th, 2009

During our visit to Merritt Island National Wildlife Refuge in central Florida we saw more than amazing birds. We almost stumbled upon several alligators in a little canal along the road. As we hopped out of the car to see some colorful birds, my wife said, “Hey, look! An alligator!” Gazing down we saw a […]

Vacation Fun at the Beach

Thursday, August 21st, 2008

I just got back from vacation. As is my tradition, I’ll put up some photos. In a day or two I’ll get back to more substantial blogging.
Our vacation began with a few days in the Sierra Nevada mountains of central California. I put up some photos from this part of our vacation a few days […]
