A much needed update

View on Kennedy Peak Originally uploaded by Matthew Singer. Wow. I realized I haven't updated this place in quite some time. A lot has happened in the past year. I went back to Ferry Beach (www.fbes.org) in the fall and had some fun on the coast of Maine with weekends in the White Mountains again. I spent the winter in…

On Mount Moosilauke Originally uploaded by mineral2. I'm in Illinois now and will be here for a good majority of the year. While I'm living 40 miles in the Chicago suburbs, I've already taken a trip to the Mississippi River to see the Bald Eagles and am planning a weekend to Nebraska to watch the mass of Sandhill Cranes as…

Mount Adams Summit Originally uploaded by mineral2. Well, I'm finished scanning 5 of 6 rolls from the fall. It sounds pitiful, but there are lots of great shots. Last Fall I shot off 9 rolls between Alabama and North Carolina. In the spring, I topped that with 13 rolls including the hike in Virginia. Add 2 more over the summer…

I've been in Marion, VA now for over a week. Its been pretty nice. So far I've been up on White Top twice with the lovely presence of snow up there. I've been hiking up Dickey Knob for a decent view and up Molly's Knob for a better view. I'm still exploring and getting to know the area. There's tons…

I enjoyed it so much that I returned for the spring season. The area is a sandstone highlands carved into canyons by the rivers. Its beautiful and…

Its been an interesting week to say the least. Friday it was warm and rainy, which killed all remains of snow. Then it got real cold. So I had a ski lesson on the grass. It doesn't really work that great on grass. Today was also cold. So... Its cold. Booo Its supposed to snow. Yay! Its going to stay…

Let it Snow

Winter has made a comeback here on the Palouse. After several weeks of warm weather into the 50's, the temperatures have cooled down, but the precipitation remains. The snow began Monday night, giving us only an inch or two, not much to worry about. But the snow continued throughout Tuesday dropping another two inches on Moscow. However, for every inch…
