Alaska, The Kayaking Portion – August 2012

Well then! Winter here, several years in the future. The snow all melted in a quick 2.5 day burst of 55 degree weather, but last night dumped another foot back – at least all the ice melted out of the gutters. Small things.

But I left off in Alaska, where we had arrived down in Seward, and were about to set off on the kayaking portion of our trip…

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??

Joshua Tree – Christmas Day, December 2011

How…did I not post this? Ok, so, we’re coming into the end of summer, work’s being all a thing, and hey, it’s time to get photos, blog, and everything in order, right? Right? Yeah, I buy it. So! I went looking for the next post, and I saw this title in the drafts, and realized it had never been posted so now it is horribly out of order, and I shudder with shame. Please absolve me. I realize that I likely didn’t write this up because, well, I have never had much written up for it. Long and short of it, I went out to JTree for a day, Christmas Day as a matter of fact, met up with some Caltech folk, climbed one rock, failed to climb another rock, and ate some Chinese food. All in all, an acceptable day I would say.

Joshua Tree just doesn’t look real, does it?

Shall we take a look? Let’s look at winter rocks in the desert. Just photos ; no text

Flagstaff, Arizona – January 2012

I keep promising myself I’ll get at least a post a month, and then the end of the month rolls around, and I feel pressured..hey, at least it keeps me going. I realize I’m now most of 3.5 years behind (let’s call it “throwback thursday” forever, not that I post on Thursdays, or any given day), but the last year or two has really had very little that will be postable, so I still swear I’ll catch up someday…

Anyway, winter turned to spring turned to almost freaking summer instantly, and then today dropped 40 degrees. Thanks, weather. It’s still terrifyingly green around here. I guess we get green, or white, with a brief splash of fall color, and little more. No big things happening, no big things coming up, though I *will* be going backpacking in California in August – hooray! That said, in January 2012, Nathan and I went out to Arizona for a few days…
