Ruby Creek

– April 21, 2018
Snowshoeing for a few hours up Ruby Creek towards Mt Parnassus / Bard Peak. Except without snowshoes. Oops.
Oh well. Finished the day at Sushi Sasa & My Brother’s Bar for some glorious sushi and some Chartreuse. Yummy.

Not the best weather. No visibility whatsoever but good hike nonetheless

Are we having fun yet?


The dog seems pretty happy about the snow

House update

Basement refinishing.
Cleaned up one brick wall and one wood panel. Also started cleaning up the joist and ceiling (wood floor really). It’s messy, it takes forever but the result is pretty good (see before / after photos below.)

Considering the wood is 120+ years old I’m happy with the result. Will probably be done with the entire cleanup in two months. Then I can start building on it…

Astrophotography

Capitol Reef, Utah is actually a desert (it receives barely 7 inch of rain per year) and has very little light pollution.  Great place for night photography. Not the best time of the year though; apparently May-September is better for some reason.

Also it was -11c degree at night so I was freezing my butt. Did two sessions; one between 9pm-10pm and the other between 1am-2am.

Corona Arch, Utah

Corona Arch is right outside Moab, Utah but it is NOT located in Arches National Park.

A bit too crowded for my taste and way too windy on that day to bother with my nicer camera.

Capitol Reef, Utah

February 16th-17th, 2018
Short road trip to Capitol Reef, Utah with the Jeep and my brand new tires 🙂

Drove along the Cathedral Valley Road up to the Temple of the Moon and Temple of the Sun. Then I retraced  a few miles and cross over to the Hartnet Rd (a bit rough but lots of fun) to check out both Lower & Upper Cathedral Valley overlook. Finally I exited the area via the north back to I70…
