Year 2 of the 365 project.
Graduate school in Pittsburgh. Pennsylvania winters, Madrid, Mexico DF trips, and the trip cross-country to San Francisco.
655 - Badlands Sunset
Day 4 - Camping in Badlands National Park.
The place was hot, desolate, fragile, immense, and amazingly beautiful.

656 - Flood Wash
Day 5 - The land does not hold a lot of water, and flash floods quickly start carving new crevices.

660 - Alex Fishing Silhouette
Day 9 - Woke up early for a bit more fruitless but gorgeous fly fishing, this time on the Clark Fork in town.
657 - Foggy Badlands
Day 6 - Fog enveloped the Badlands on the morning we packed out, creating a strange contrast between the stark, craggy landscape and the soft blanketing of mist.

659 - The Missoula Osprey
Day 8 - Rookie-league baseball in Missoula. The Missoula Osprey (Arizona Diamondbacks) vs. Great Falls Voyagers (Chicago White Sox). The mascot was one of the more high-quality elements of the game.
666 - Home Sweet Home
After 2 weeks on the road, pulled into San Francisco. This was the view from Kate's temp housing.

670 - Foggy Bridge
The Bay Bridge disappearing into the fog, caught while walking back home along the Embarcadero.
664 - Wine Cellar
Day 13 - Wine tasting in Southern Oregon.
Kate found this winemaker who is just starting her own label, primarily focusing on Rhone varietals. We emailed her,and ended up getting a private, personal tour of the facilities and got to taste some excellent wines.

663 - Outside the Morning Glory Café
Day 12 - Breakfast with the wife (yay!) at Morning Glory Café in Ashland, OR. There's always a wait, but it's out in their garden, and the food is always worth it.
665 - Badass Zeppelin Sidecar
Day 14 - I have visions of riding the land on this bike as a masked avenger, with Rocky (my little Boston Terrier) in the sidecar wearing a WWI German army helmet as my intrepid sidekick.

672 - Retro Alex
A sketch done of my little brother, age roughly 3 or 4, at some flea market or zoo or carnival. My mother framed it, and it's quite the contrast with the way he looks at 28.
674 - Poker
My mom has the habit of pretending that she's completely drunk when playing cards. Then you look up at the end of the night and she's taken you for everything you own.
673 - Taiko
Taiko drummer at the Diablo Japanese American Festival in Concord.
This yearly festival has pretty much the best $5 udon I've ever tasted. We always used to go as kids and stuff ourselves until we could do no more than pass out on the grass and vacantly stare at the karate matches.

677 - Apartment Christening
We decided to start a brand-new age-old tradition. Any time you move into a new apartment, the inaugural ceremony must involve kissing a plant.
