Photos from the Denver Botanic Gardens’ annual orchid show, many of which I tagged for the usual photo contest (though none won).

An orchid flower bud just beginning to open. In the background, other orchid flowers on the same stem are in full bloom.

Photos from the 2017 TPIN Aspen retreat/vacation. The vacation was fun (though I got sick during the second half), but what struck me the most was how little snow was on the ground this year… Far less than I’ve ever seen in December this late in the year.

Snow-capped mountains border a steep valley. The winter sky is cold and gray. On the right, a crow takes flight.

Coast to Coast

A combination of astute planning and sheer luck/misfortune saw me traveling from San Francisco, to Louisville, Kentucky, to Washington, DC over the course of two and a half weeks.

Looking southeast across Arches National Park. Pillars of red sandstone can be seen to the right. In the distance, the walls of a desert canyon almost seem to glow in the Sun's light.
