Skating the Dock

I looked at the new Ketchikan web cam and saw the kids skating the dock. When I first moved there in '92 some of the first people I met were doing exactly what you see in this picture exactly where they're doing it. Some things never change!

SE Oregon Road Trip

Waldo Lake

Kayak camping

Fort Rock

Cave Lake- Modoc National Forest California

Mt. Shasta through binoculars.

You can see Shasta in the background of this one.

Greaser Petroglyphs from the Clovis folks

Antelope Refuge

Prongdonger by the water hole. Through binocs again.

Heading to the summit of the Steens.

Wildhorse Lake

Oops. Broken wheel strut. From the looks of the tracks two people walked away.

Snowy Steens from the Alvord.

Pete French Round Barn

Riddle Mountain- Dan's future home.

Drake Peak... high on Montisore and barely able to hang on- to the bottle

8400 feet

Steens! Ok ok 9700 fucking feet!

For a place that only gets 7 inches of rain a year we've seen a ton.

The most difficult part of camping is the two or so hours between coffee and beer.

Huge hot spring!


Lunch at the Lucky Pine in Mitchel. Yeah!


It's always hard to come home from a trip but at least we have Double Mountain on the way.
