Bryce Canyon

Some photos from a recent trip to Bryce canyon with my French friend, Pierre. Let me tell you: Bryce is amazing. Pierre compared the towering stone "hoodoos" of the Canyon to the "ancient ruins of some impossible cathedral." I thought they looked like the bloody stalagmites of a colossal, upside-down cave. In any case, they just looked otherworldly, as if nothing on Earth could cook up such eerie formations. Of course the recipe is simple: lots of rushing water, wind, maybe some ice--and millions of years. Erosion, you artistic genius, you.

But more on that later. I'm off to California for a week. Bye now.

Grace: I was totally in Irvine! Except it for only for like 10 minutes on the way from San Diego -- before taking a train to L.A. -- and I was like, I should call Grace. But then my train arrived. And then I took a plane to sacramento right after... alas, alas.

The chipmunk was easy to photograph because it wasn't afraid of ANYTHING. It posed for photograph after photograph. And then, angry at the fact it showed NO fear, Pierre threw a rock at it. It ran away then...

I was grocery shopping today and came across some Grapples. I paused for a moment examining this mystery fruit. The thought of a purchase even crossed my mind. But then I remembered your previous posting and threw the Crapples to the ground in disgust.

So for you valiant warning concerning the Crapples, I salute you good sir.

Excellent. Avoid those crapples like you were standing naked in a garden with a chatty snake. They're no good for you.
