This year during Supercomputing in Salt Lake City it decided to snow on our last day there. Morgen and Nora decided to wander out and do some adventuring. I really like this picture of them.

Here we are at the Seattle Pride Festival enjoying a Drag Queen show. It was a blast.

We had a family day not to long ago and Nora, Morgen, and I went and checked out the Solar Tower. Pretty interesting. They use molten salt to transfer and store the energy.

Here we are reflected in one of the many many mirrors.

A month or so ago one of the contractors working on the bathroom started hollering at me from the front yard. Seems we had a 3-4ft Bull snake heading for the open front door. I ended up chasing him across the parking area to where the gophers live. Hopefully it’ll stay over there and help with the gopher issues.

We stopped by the North Rim of the Grand Canyon.  A bit hazy, but still a sight to behold. 

Here is the route we’re looking at doing. Give or take a side road or three. This is going to be a kick. I’ve never been to places like Bryce Canyon, Arches National Park, etc.

Took a couple of hours three weeks ago to knock down the front area, then another two hours today to redo the front and add the whole side section. A lot of mowing was done to reclaim a piece of the property. We’re on 4.7 acres here.

I didn’t realize that I have never put up any pictures of the Balloon Festival we have every October here in Albuquerque.

Just to give a person a taste, here is one of the pictures I took right after we moved here. And this is just one wave. They have to send up the balloons in waves to give them enough space.

Now that summer is approaching we see a lot of hot air balloons on our morning commute through Albuquerque. This morning there were 8 balloons up. It isn’t the ocean, but it’s a pretty sight.

I snapped this at the stoplight.

I thought I would put up a couple of pictures overlooking Tijeras from the house. Living up in the mountains is a lot different than city living.
