Marty’s photo of the day #2162: This is the start of the Jago River in the Brooks Range. Here the river is frozen. But just a few miles to the north, the river enters the lower-level plains of the Arctic National Wildlife Refuge and melts. That’s where Deb and I got into inflatable canoes and […]

Happy Earth Day! Sorry, Republicans

Marty’s photo of the day #2161: Happy Earth Day! Sorry Republicans. I know this liberal day stands for everything you vote against, and that preserving the planet for future generations must really depress you. But don’t despair. Your holiday, Black Lungs Are Fun Day, is only a month away.

Are you on the correct side of the road?

Are you on the correct side of the road?

Marty’s photo of the day #2054: This is a typical rural road in Queensland, Australia. Note that the pavement (Aussies call it bitumen) is only wide enough for one car. So what happens is that everyone drives down the middle, no matter which way they are going. When two cars meet, they pull to their […]
