Willie Nelson Live!

Willie Nelson, Stiefel Theater, Salina KS

We saw Willie Nelson at the Stiefel Theater on Jerry Garcia’s birthday! It was a great show, including one of my favorites, Still is Still Moving along with Me and Paul, a Hank Williams medley, and a whole lot more! Willie was in very fine voice. No hint of his 80 years of age (saw … Read more

Summer Storm near Lindsborg

This storm blew in from the northwestlate in the afternoon. Came in fast, first some strong winds, then a bit of rain, and now, maybe 90 minutes later, back to sunshine. Nice dramatic lighting and some cool clouds right before the storm hit. No harm was done, so here are a few photos. [fusion_builder_container hundred_percent=”yes” … Read more

View from Louisville Bike Trails

View from Louisville CO Bike Trails

When we visit Boulder we usually stay in Louisville. It’s only a few miles away and we like the hotel where we stay. There are some bike trails in Louisville, and this last trip I explored them quite a bit. I’ve ridden the trails in the area a few times now and am finally getting … Read more

Meadowlark Trail

Home has come to mean riding the Meadowlark Trail as much as anything, and after a week’s absence it was great to be reunited with this scenic former railroad line south of Lindsborg. Riding in the beautiful golden light of sunset made it all the better.

Kings River Overlook

Kings River Overlook, NW Arkansas

We took a short trip to Arkansas in early June. Besides the usual sight-seeing, I took a short hike up to the Kings River Overlook.

This is the first of a planned set of photos taken during a recent trip to Arkansas. We discovered the Elk Falls bridge and waterfall 19 years ago during our last trip to Arkansas. It’s been a while, but we found ourselves in the area a couple of days ago, and of course I took … Read more

Maxwell from a Drone

Maxwell from Above

I flew my drone out at the McPherson State Fishing Lake (commonly known as Maxwell, for the adjacent game preserve) today and got a few decent and interesting photos. In hindsight, I should have been on the other side of the lake, looking at the east shore, given the time of day. (Noted for future … Read more
