Louisville Bike Trails, Redux

Dead and Company

We took a quick trip to see Dead & Company play at Folsom Field in Boulder earlier this month. We had just been to Estes Park in June, so no real touristy stuff this trip. We stayed in Louisville, and I was able to further explore the bike trails in the area which was great … Read more

Estes & Bear Lakes

Bear Lake View

We went to Estes Park at the end of May to celebrate Sheryl’s birthday. The day before her birthday it seemed like I had all the fun as I biked around Estes Lake in the morning and hiked around Bear Lake in the afternoon! Here are some photos from each activity.

Buddy Guy, Smokin’ at 82!

Buddy Guy, Cotillion Ballroom

We saw Buddy Guy this past Father’s Day at the Cotillion Ballroom in Wichita, Kansas. It was our first time at the ballroom and the 2nd time we had seen Buddy. I’d heard of the Cotillion since I was a kid; I think their advertising must have paid a big chunk of KFDI radio’s budget … Read more

Seven Years Cycling

7 Years Cycling:Bayshore Sunset

Another Special Birthday

Fly Fishing near Estes Lake

I’ve celebrated a few birthdays with Sheryl, and this one, spent in Estes Park, is no exception in terms of being special.

Dark Skies, Country Roads

Salemsborg Church

We were driving home during the golden hour and the light was particularly striking today, so I stopped to take few pictures. The Salemsborg Church, north of Lindsborg, is spectacularly highlighted with the dark clouds behind, and the near by power lines gleam with the bright sunshine.

Spring Bike Ride 2018 Style

Bike at the River

Spring is already 1/3 complete, but given we had snow the last two Saturdays, this post is actually pretty timely and not late at all. Today marked a number of cycling milestones. My numbers have been down, dramatically so this past winter and so today’s ride was a great confidence builder. I’ve now ridden more … Read more

Sandhill Cranes in Kearney Nebraska

Sandhill Cranes at sunset

In mid-March we took a spur of the moment trip up to Kearney Nebraska to view the migrating Sandhill Cranes. The migration season lasts about 6 weeks and we were there a little bit before the peak. Put another way, around 400,000 of the eventual 600,000 cranes were in the area when we were visiting. … Read more

In lieu of a “real” blog post I present this photo of a crow overlooking the Colorado River at the far eastern end of the Grand Canyon. Image has been slightly “fractalized*.” *Processed using the Fractalius filter.
