I’m in Edison, NJ this morning. Yesterday I took the LIRR into Manhattan with my uncle to see the refurbished MOMA, only to find it is closed on Tuesdays. We walked up to Lincoln Center instead, had lunch, and visited the old Museum of American Folk Art (now the annex to the new facility in […]
The first thing my brother and I did when he picked me up at the airport was go for a slice of pizza and a Snapple.
While I’m typing, I can smell Christmas tree bread. Every Christmas morning my mom bakes bread shaped like Christmas trees for breakfast. I arrived on Long Island early Thursday afternoon. The weather here has been mild (kind of fall-like). I was delayed an hour and a half in Atlanta because the flight’s crew was stranded […]
A sloooow day at work. I thought the clock was moving backwards. I’m leaving again in a few days and so I’m not feeling especially ambitious.
My photos from vacation are developed. I almost didn’t want to see them because I was afraid they would be just a bunch of pictures of red rocks and evoke nothing of the experiences I had. But they look really good. The funny thing is that they distort the time line a little; I didn’t […]
I returned triumphantly to my apartment last night. I’m glad I cleaned it before I left because I’m messin’ it up now as I unpack and pile up the laundry. Lance did a nice job of feeding my fish. No deaths on this vacation. It was a good trip. I think I will backfill the […]
Friday’s drive back from Moab was long and a little dull. The mountains are so big you can’t really appreciate them while you’re driving. One stretch of I-70 is in a valley so narrow that there is only the highway- divided and stacked up on the gorge wall- the river, the phone line, and the […]
I left Many Farms really early this morning to get to Navajo National Monument for a four-hour hike to the Batatakin ruins.
I’m staying in a high school dormitory tonight that used to be a boarding school.
This morning I visited Monument Valley, and am in Gallup for the night.
I made it out of Elephant Canyon without too much excitement.
Here I am in Elephant Canyon, camping in the backcountry by myself for the first time ever. It is starting to snow on my tent!
After departing Arches this morning, and a nice hot breakfast in town, I drove out to the Island in the Sky at Canyonlands National Park.
The Devil’s Garden at Arches National Park. That’s where I hiked and that’s where I’m camping. It is frigging freezing here, probably about 15 degrees F later tonight.
After leaving Durango this morning, I visited Hovenweep National Monument and Bluff, Utah.
Yesterday afternoon I visited the very beautiful Mesa Verde National Park.
