Snowy Skyline

Ever have one of those weekends where you run around like crazy and get absolutely nothing done?

Okay, this weekend wasn’t quite that bad, as I did get a few things done, but I’m still way way way behind. A trip is upcoming soon, and I’m not nearly ready for it. Heck, I haven’t even started packing.

Plus, there’s studying to do, all of your lovely blogs to read, and a couple of hiking posts to write.


On a more positive note, I decided to take the plunge and upgrade my Flickr account to pro. One of the reasons was that I realized (far, far too late) that all of the panoramic shots I was putting together so painstakingly in Photoshop were getting downsized. Bah.

Well, problem fixed, hope you enjoy the photos.

As you may have heard, we have been getting just a little bit of rain around here of late. There was a bit of a break on Saturday while I was out running errands, and I happened to be afforded this view from down in the South Bay:

Mountains panorama

Go check it out full-resolution. Downtown Los Angeles is on the left side, the San Gabriels, dominated by Mt. Baldy, on the right.

It’s not as good as Homer-Dog & Just A Girl’s wintry pictures, but it’s awfully impressive.

And yet again I’m reminded that, at times, this crazy town can be awful darn pretty.



  1. Trip you say?

    It’s just as good, even better since it’s a panorama.

  2. Don’t sell that picture short – It’s very nice indeed.

    I second JaG’s question – Trip?

  3. Beautiful shot! Hope tyhe weather cooperates with all of your hiking plans! We got out and had a fire this weekend. My pack still smells of it. I’m in no hurry to be rid of it!

  4. Great Pic, GH.

    Trip? Trip” Can we all go?

  5. Pretty! And is your trip somewhere fun? Tropical perhaps? And do you have an extra ticket and feel like taking me?

    Think about it.

  6. What is this trip I hear of? Are you extending invites? And that picture is incredible BTW!

  7. To all: trip details to come towards the end of the week.

    just a girl – I’m starting to like the panorama’s more and more

    Homer-Dog – thanks

    backpacker momma – I always find that after a few days the campfire smoke degrades to smell like cigarette smoke, and that’s no darn good

    dobegil – Thanks for the compliment.

    brandy – I hope it’s fun, it’s all going to be very new!

    ruby – Sure, but the plane flight out here might be expensive!
