The long, summer days are getting shorter, and shorter. The evening temperatures are getting cooler, and cooler. The seasons are changing, and now is one of the best times of the year to be in Colorado. And the locals are getting restless.Read More
I know it looks like I've only been hanging out at the beach all summer long, but the truth is far from it.Read More
Until this year, I've only set foot in California twice; once for business (Los Angeles area many years ago), and once while driving down the coast (visiting San Francisco for half a day...also many, many years ago). After spending a week in San Diego, it's easy to understand why so many people dream of the California coastline, and a sun-drenched lifestyle—for the record, Colorado has a ton of sunny days too.
Even though my ideal vacation doesn't include water-based activities, even I have to admit...the ocean is hypnotic and calming. I didn't take many photography while on vacation, not because inspiration was missing, or lacking. I was more interested in soaking up the sun, breathing in the sea air, and relaxing. But I had to bring home at least one "photographic" memory.
My family and I spent most of one day in and around La Jolla. We enjoyed it so much, we came back after dinner, and watched the sunset. It wasn't an amazing cloudscape bursting with pastel colors, it was a simple, peaceful sunset. A relaxing end to a perfect day with my family. Thanks for the memories, California. I hope to see you again...sooner, rather than later.

I read the other day, that you should never start a conversation with the weather. I guess it's boring, and a social taboo. Ok. Thanks for letting me know.
I'll admit, I’m more interested in day-to-day weather than most, but what if the weather is unusual? I mean, that seems to be a good reason to talk about the weather. It might be true for most conversations, but it’s pretty much the whole point of my most recent hike.
Since I’ve been whining all winter about the lack of snow, when there is snows—actual, ground covering snow—I’m gonna talk about it...non-stop. Ok, I get it now. It's boring to talk about the weather. But after months of waiting, wishing, and begging, snow finally made an appearance, and I couldn’t wait to get outside.Read More
