The Rear View

Backside of the Grand Tetons – Driggs, Idaho

The front side of the Grand Tetons is one of the best known and most photographed landscapes of the American West. However, the back side is just as beautiful and has far less tourism associated with it. This is the view I was accustomed to seeing when I was growing up in eastern Idaho, whenever we would drive north of town the Tetons would appear in all their glory in the distance from behind a nearby foothill.

Pretty as a Picture

The schooner Kaiulani – St. Michaels, Maryland

When in touron country, sometimes it’s best to act like a touron – in this case, taking a cruise boat ride around the area of St. Michaels, Maryland. To my recollection, it’s the only time I’ve been on a cruise boat ride in Maryland waters. However, I can truthfully say that it was an enjoyable experience, and one that offered a unique perspective when out on the water. We came upon this gorgeous vessel around the midpoint of our short voyage, the schooner Kaiulani.

Bored Out of Her Mind

Autumn – Poolesville, Maryland

This is Autumn, one of our two Maine Coon cats, looking like she’s just completely bored out of her mind. She loves to play fetch with little dragonfly toys that we heave all over the house just for her. To hear her side of the story, she’s the most abused little kitty to ever live… the most starved… the least paid-attention-to… the absolutely most neglected… the most ill-treated thing in all of existence. But that’s just so we feel totally obligated to lavish everything on this spoiled kitty, our feline overlord.
