Marty’s photo of the day #3630: Every morning before work, I take my dog, Nellie, to a clearing in the woods by my house, and we attempt to play Frisbee. Yesterday, we had a very curious (and I think very pregnant) doe hanging around. First, I had to talk the deer out of Deb’s garden, […]
Marty’s photo of the day #3629: For this photo I’m looking south, with the Brooks Range in the distance and the Arctic Ocean to my back. The blue tent is Deb’s and mine.

Marty’s photo of the day #3622: The forest surrounding our house is in full-bloom, with blue lupines and arrowleaf balsamroot. Here’s one of the balsamroots.
