Mariposa Lily?  I really need to get better at identifying these guys.

USAFA to Stanley Reservoir to the radio tower and back.

Out scouting out the Waldo Canyon Fire burn area for a possible trip of Blodgett Peak.  We didn’t see any signs indicating the area is still closed by the NFS, so I might go for it.  Public lands are assumed open unless otherwise posted, right?

Mar 2014 - Damp day on Doubtful Sound.  Pretty typical for one of the wettest places on earth.

Stanley Canyon - 19 Jul 2014

If there’s anything that qualifies for a “home” trail for me, Stanley Canyon is it.  I’ve probably done this hike about once a summer for the last 20 years.

We got caught in a shower on the way down this time, which made the creek scramble at the top of the canyon a little slick.  I thought I could catch a shot of her falling into the water, but she disappointed me.

Milford Track Day 4

THE END (at Sandfly Point on Milford Sound)

Wait, Wait Don’t Tell Me at Red Rocks, with Bob “We’ll Leave the Lights On For You” Bodett, Carla Poundstone, Peter Sagal, and friends.

Totally different crowd than the last time we were here (for a screening of Rocky Horror Picture Show).
