Two years before, my visit to the Grand Canyon had been one of the highlights of the trip. I decided to repeat the visit on this trip. Then, I had visited the South Rim of the canyon.

During the entire drive from my time-share in the Mojave Desert, I'd been sitting in smog. There was smog in the valleys, smog at Mt Palomar, smog in the San Diego suburbs and finally, I got to Cabrillo and... the entire area was awash in fog from the ocean. While this meant that my pictures of San...

I'm not sure what I thought the attraction of Joshua Tree would be. At this point, I was pretty tired of deserts. I think the main reason I wanted to go there was because of a the title of the "Joshua Tree" U2 album.
The park is mostly known for its groves a Joshua trees (surprise!). I asked the...

My neighbor, Tom Block, is a painter. He had an exhibition at the AFL-CIO headquarters near the White House that I went to and took some pictures from.

While it was a thrill to see John Cleese, his presentation didn't go so well. There was a moderator who decided it would be appropriate to spend more time discussing his own feelings than John's.
