In remembrance of 9/11, I took a commercial flight. At least, that’s how it worked out.
After a month or so of not traveling, it’s back on the “road” again. Thanks to my trip to Taipei last year, I get the shorter TSA lines and can sit near the front of the plane. I’m not sure I like the front any better than the far back. Either gets you off the […]
Dirty windows + tons of haze = low contrast photos. The view of Diamond Peak has been better.
The trip to Sacramento was uneventful. Well, maybe not quite. I did sit by Tim, who works √2 cubes from me, and learn what he does. And I was able to identify Mt. Thielsen, the unknown peak from last week’s post. Success!

Another week, another opportunity to visit Cannon Beach. Since our visit the previous weekend, massive breakers scrubbed the Oregon coast. Ecola Creek rerouted north again, much closer to bluffs. The loose sand that was on the beach washed away. The tsunami evacuation maps normally posted on the seawall are gone. Have they also washed away? […]
