Climate Change and Evolution

My mind is caught in 1913 in the Keweenaw Peninsula these days, but tonight I watched a NOVA program (I think) on PBS about a theory of how frequent climate changed spurred evolutionary change in hominids, leading eventually to us. Very interesting, but it begs another question: If homo sapiens has been evolving more or […]

More Photographic Evidence from Summer Sojourn

This is fad, at least in the UP. People build these teepee-like structures of driftwood. Suffering wannabe architects? Never actuallly saw anyone working on one of these. They just sort of appear — put their by aliens maybe?

Memories of Deer Park and Surrounds

Ya Don’t See This Every Day

CO Jason Wicklund of Iron County sent me the photos with an open invite to title it as I choose. There were (and are) all sorts of temptations, but we’ll leave it at Ya don’t See this every day. Over.

22 Aug


54 days on da road, 52 of them in the Yoop. Bears and wolves, snakes, northern lights and aurora borealis,  visiting friends, making new friends, a triple-rainbow, smallmouth, brook trout, Lake Superior storms, agates, high wind, heavy rain, lots of good work done — cartoons, poems, some shooting with a 30/40 Krag (180 grain) carbine […]
