Happy New Year!
We’re back home. The holidays were relaxing (except for the brief bout of flu) and fun, but it’s always good to be back home. I’ve got a few more days off before school starts again on Tuesday.
Around the World
For Christmas, I got The Hidden Canyon by Edward Abbey (text) and John Blaustein (photos). The book describes a journey through the Grand Canyon by wooded boats. The photos are spectacular; you can see some on John Blaustein‘s site here and here.
And speaking of beautiful photos: It seems that I don’t have to take any more sunset photos myself because Garret offers so many these days. I liked the ones he posted in the last couple of days: one, two, three. When I grow up, I want to live in a house with a beautiful sunset view like he does.
