A Month and a Half

Not too much to report for the time being, but figured people were curious what I've been doing. Well, I've been enjoying southern California for all it has to offer. Here are a few snaps:

First off, an *updated* picture out my window, as I work from home (sometimes). Note the electric car out front, the MacBook, simple speakers, and plenty of light and fresh air!

The next four pictures are from a hiking trip near my house -- started at Chantry Flats, two nights in the 'backcountry' and then popped out at Mt. Wilson (followed by a short hike down the hill to the car.)

The very spot where this campfire was (safely) lit (and extinguished) (West Fork Campground) is now completely decimated by the wildfires.
The wildfire that burned the whole area:

Next few pics are of general Los Angeles area fun-things: Dodgers game (mid-pitch), Griffith Observatory, and the Hollywood Bowl for an unbelievably good LA Philharmonic / Brazilian musician night + Fireworks.

Finally, a picture of me in a funny hat on the beach, followed by a picture of me in a serious hat, followed by a picture and movie of a special friend who likes to hula hoop with fire!
