From North America’s beacon of freedom on Independence Day

From North America’s beacon of freedom on Independence Day

Marty’s photo of the day #2588: With today being Independence Day, Americans turn to thoughts of freedom: freedom of the press, freedom to not be shot, freedom from being embarrassed by the head of your country, freedom from misspelled presidential tweets, freedom to believe in science, freedom from Putin, freedom from the cone of silence, […]

Time Is Irreverent: Canadian Best Seller

Time Is Irreverent: Canadian Best Seller

If you follow my posts, you know: “Time Is Irreverent” wasn’t supposed to be published until March 1st, but a miscommunication with Amazon resulted in an accidental publication date of February 7. I wasn’t prepared and was in a near-panic because none of my promotions were in order. I quickly did what I could on […]

Crossing the Athabasca River

Crossing the Athabasca River

Marty’s photo of the day #2448: When I photographed this amazing elk, crossing the Athabasca River in Alberta, Canada, my camera lens was on its deathbed. Consequently most of the photos didn’t turn out, and since I was using a film camera at the time, I didn’t know until it was too late. This is […]

Will they be migrating to oil wells?

Will they be migrating to oil wells?

Marty’s photo of the day #2401: I took this photo in the Yukon Territory. This is a small section of the Porcupine caribou migration. Traveling more than 700 miles between Canada and the Arctic National Wildlife Refuge, in Alaska, it is the longest terrestrial migration on Earth. Of course now that the sinister Republican tax […]

Being artsy

Being artsy

Marty’s photo of the day #2233: I don’t remember much about this photo, except that I took it in Canada, north of the Arctic Circle, and I was trying to be artsy.

Slob Hunters

Slob Hunters

Marty’s photo of the day #1904: One of the biggest reasons I dislike hunting is because of slob hunters. And, of course, no one ever admits to being a slob hunter! It’s always “someone else.” Two sights while Deb and I were in Utah in late August didn’t do anything to change my opinion. When […]

Inuvik

Inuvik

Marty’s photo of the day #1884: Remember yesterday’s photo of colorful downtown Ushuaia, Tierra del Fuego, Argentina (the southernmost city in the world)? Today we travel in the opposite direction to dull and austere downtown Inuvik, Northwest Territories, Canada (the northernmost city you can drive to in Canada). I love Canada, but Inuvik is one […]

Ushuaia

Ushuaia

Marty’s photo of the day #1883: Here’s a look at downtown Ushuaia, Tierra del Fuego, Argentina—the southernmost city in the world. Tomorrow, for comparison, I’m going to show you a photo I took of downtown Inuvik, Northwest Territories, Canada. Although there are some cities farther north than Inuvik, it is the northernmost city you can […]

Hiking with the herd

Hiking with the herd

Marty’s photo of the day #1680: Yesterday’s photo was of a Dall sheep in the Yukon Territory. Today we stay in the far north and go hiking with the Porcupine caribou migration. These caribou go on the longest migration of any land animal on Earth. They start in Canada and work their way northwest to […]

Coo loo coo coo, coo coo coo coo!

Coo loo coo coo, coo coo coo coo!

Marty’s photo of the day #1588: Canada is back! Eh? In honor of Canada overwhelmingly rejecting their nine-year experiment with conservatism and electing Justin Trudeau of the Liberal Party to be their next Prime Minister, I thought a Canada photo would be appropriate. Besides, Stephen Harper was such a hoser! Okay this is the Porcupine […]

New Zealand Woman: “George Bush—he’s a lunatic!”

New Zealand Woman: “George Bush—he’s a lunatic!”

Marty’s photo of the day #1501. It’s Book Excerpts Week, featuring an excerpt from my first book, “Cool Creatures, Hot Planet: Exploring the Seven Continents,” and a corresponding photo (that may or may not be from the book). This particular section, which takes place in Canada (across the street from Klondike Kate Ryan’s old residence) […]
