    A couple old American Beech trees in the Louisiana Arboretum

    Some Live Oaks and Spanish Moss from the Battle of New Orleans site.
    07-11-05 New Orleans Battle Site 2, Live Oaks, present at the Battle.jpg
    The oaks would not have been there for the battle in 1814 but were probably planted around 1830-1850.

    A couple of pictures from our vacation last week.

    The wife and I were out very early one very foggy morning at Bowman Bay Park on Fidalgo Island in Washington. We were the only ones out there and we were just enjoying walking around watching the shore birds go about their business when we were surprised by a doe and her two fawns who came down to the beach to eat seaweed. The fog made it a challenging photo op, but it was a cool thing to see:



    I've already posted two pictures of the great Mt. Ranier, but I guess I will go for the trilogy. Mt. Ranier national park is a true wonder. If you go in the late summer or early fall you get the sub-alpine wild flower bloom, which is truly something to see. In my opinion, Ranier is the most visually stunning natural formation in the U.S. Reasonable people can disagree on that, but that is my take and I'm sticking to it. Here are some wildflowers with the great volcano behind:

    I'm resurrecting an old thread. Went to a place called Irene Farm this morning; it's a sort of organic farm/restaurant thingy where you can walk around and look at cows and stuff. And then I saw these little fellows:







    What surprised me is that the place is in the city suburbs - I wonder how a troop of vervet monkeys ended up here. They were skittish but clearly fairly used to humans.

    A scorpion with her back covered in babies. And as bonus, a big spider peeking out of its burrow right next to the scorpion:
