Sites from New Mexico

Spent the weekend reliving High School at our 20th reunion.

Yes Los Alamos is a "unique" place:
Friends were made:
Bikes were ridden:

And some shots from the drive home:

I'm calling this one "Squirrels in Love" :)

Big Summer Day -- Part 2

After a morning of sailing the kids and I packed up for a picnic at the top of the nations highest continuously paved highway.

We took more than a few stops along the way to enjoy the views...

Big Summer Day -- Part 1

We got the chance to go sail a Sunfish on Saturday. More fun and harder than it looks. I could wax poetic about the joys of sailing, but I couldn't come even remotely close to the description given in the "learn to sail" leftlet shown below and published in (wait for it, here it comes, you guessed it) 1976.
Now there is a lot going on in this picture. This whole post could be about this picture. But it isn't. I'll just say I'm pretty sure that dude isn't sighting off of a fixed object somewhere on the shore. :)

Now on to actual pictures taken this millennium:

Flowers, Skeeters, and Bikes

We finally rolled out the vee dub for a camping overnighter ('bout time!).

The kids enjoyed a good peep at this guy on the way out of town:

Couldn't take a step without tripping over some wildflowers:

We biked a little:

And soaked up the sound of the river and feel of wide-open skies:
