Looking out my backdoor

No tambourines or elephants.

Just snow.

Tom's on his way back home after over-nighting in Visalia. They are currently stopping cars at Lake Shasta requiring "Maximum Chains". How are "maximum chains" different from regular chains?

Big Waves

Several people made videos of the tsunami in Crescent City last week.  Not to detract from the horror in Japan, I found the speed at which the tide advanced intriguing and somehow mesmerizing.  It is easy to see how one could be lured to the beach and then overtaken by the waves.

Apache Trail

On another damp, gray, drizzly day at home in Oregon I need to take the time to post more Arizona pictures.   I accidentally deleted all of the pictures taken that day on my camera, so we will have to "make do" with Tom's.

The Superstition Mountains, taken from Apache Junction.

Traci also posted pictures of the drive and a review of our (deplorable) lunch on her blog.

Canyon Lake

Another shot of Canyon Lake

Did I mention that this is the real "outback"?  Seemingly endless miles of dirt road.

A cave off the road. Were I younger and more nimble, or give more time . . .

Evening falls.
