Double Trouble

Watching Jen and Ben's puppy for a few days.  I am trying to remember that the Galaxy III has a decent lens and is often in my pocket....Droid phone photography!

Merry Christmas

Let There Be Peace On Earth

Finally, snow!

 After a few hours skiing in the woods (which protected me from strong winds) I was glad to come home to warm soup and dry clothes. Looks like we're going to have a white Christmas after all.

Flat Tire

'A bad attitude is like a flat tire.  If you don't change it you won't go anywhere.'  However, this old truck is pretty cool right where it is in Darwin, California.

California Coyote

       When all the trees have been cut down, when all the animals have been hunted, when all the waters are polluted, when all the air is unsafe to breathe, only then will you discover that you cannot eat money. ~ Cree Prophecy

Fog and Ice

Saturday was the Skunk River Paddlers Annual Waffle Breakfast and Paddle.  We had to break ice in several places, but still had plenty of water to paddle.   

      Paddling Sunday afternoon was extra special due to heavy fog...and the fact that we still have open water in December!
