We recently returned from a cruise to SW Alaska. It was the first time both to Alaska, and on a cruise ship. We left a beatiful Sunny Saturday in Seattle and knew within a few days we'd be experiencing March in Seattle. Why did we go to Alaska when Seattle was in full summer bloom? Some photos will help.

2012 Tour de France

My wife went to Amsterdam a few weeks ago. I, thinking it would be a quick round trip, didn't go with her. On the final day of her trip, I get a call, "guess where we're going tomorrow? Liège!" She and few others would be taking the train to Belgium for the start of Le Tour de France. There was no way of knowing they'd go before she left, but she did manage bring back some goodies and some photos posted below.

The 2012 TDF has been fun to watch and also witness a new breed of (mostly clean) cyclists come to the fore. The racing is much different, but exciting nonetheless. Bradley Wiggins and the SKY racing team have dominated since taking over the Yellow Jersey from Fabian Cancellara and BMC after the first week. They are arguably the two best teams there this year. The Brits should also do well in the 2012 Olympics given their TDF successes thus far.

Next year is the 100th running of the TDF and it would be cool to see it up close. Vive le Tour.

Long Shadows

Saturday turned out to be a rare November day (around here, that means no rain). The valley trail was in great shape and the fall shadows were perfect for snapping a few pics. ATD
