Mammoth and Yosemite, June 2012

Hey I had a baby! …18 mpnths ago. There are lots of photos of that elsewhere. Some five and a half years ago, however, I drove up with Nathan and his parents towards the mountains. Man, I miss the California mountains. This was one of our last few trips before moving to New York.

What did we see??

Yosemite to Mammoth – September 2011 – An Interlude

Hey! We’ve got new basement windows. I’m oddly delighted for something so mundane. BRING IT ON WINTER. Actually…no, I am going to have to walk that back. I would much rather hunker down in Southern California from November to May, but well, since that doesn’t seem to be an option this year, at least I can have twice as many panes, and far few window cracks (and no tape based repairs) on our basement windows this year. Oorah. It’s the little things.

Anyway, where we were? Ah, right, I had just finished up a quick backpacking trip to Ten Lake in Yosemite, and was more or less back at my car…

Leaving, alas.

Let’s move along, shall we?

Road Trip – Part the Last, June 2010

After the many adventures on the way up, I did finally make it up to Seattle. I spent a couple of days there, and then a couple more, adding time in for repairing the car, but it was a good chance to see friends.

I would sure hope so

Road Trip – Part the Third, June 2010

In the first parts of my trip, I left Los Angeles and wound my way north through California, from the Bay Area, up to Lassen Volcanic Park , and then north to Lava Beds National Monument. From there we headed north into Oregon, heading to Crater Lake National Park. After that , Jen had to head back home, and after a farewell at the Klamath Falls Airport, I headed west, continued up the Oregon coastline, and eventually made my way to Portland.
