Went to a super-fun wedding in Coeur d’Alene, Idaho, last weekend. Crossed off three new states on that trip: Washington (still haven’t been to Seattle, but we flew into Spokane), Idaho and Montana. All beautiful and worthy of return visits for sure. Everyone wears plaid in these parts.
Glaciers are in the middle of that mountain. The banded strip of snow is covering one. Moose = invisible without binoculars. Thank you to the older gentleman wearing blue-and-white-stripe, train-conductor-style overalls for lending me his.
Went to Montana’s Glacier National Park last week. It’s gorgeous and changing fast. Scientists say all glaciers will have melted by 2030. Blame climate change for the speediness of their disappearance.
Lots of fun sights on Earth Day in Asheville, NC.
The Blue Ridge Mountains are gorgeous, and so is the Blue Ridge Parkway, which snakes through North Carolina and Virginia. I biked/camped along the better part of it with a friend right after college. Went hiking here yesterday, near Asheville, NC. It’s gorgeous and really accessible. Highly recommend it.
I guess those are bugs on the windshield? Either that or my iPhone needs a bath …
Reasons abound: Green chili, green chili beer, scenery like this, skiing without the lines, lack of pretentiousness and lots of fun times skiing here with my dad.
At the Tinariwen — band from Mali — show last night at Variety Playhouse in Atlanta. This guy’s dancing was probably the most memorable part … followed closely by the guy wearing a turban and playing a shiny red guitar, and another guy who was playing an enormo-gourd as a drum.
