Southern Oregon

Galena and I just got back from a trip to Southern Oregon, where we celebrated my 40th birthday with family of various stripes. (For those who don't know, the "blood" members of my family are pretty badly outnumbered by those who have joined through marriage, adoption, foster relationships, or just assimilation, i.e., they've hung around for so long that my parents finally put 'em in their will.)

We spent time hiking, horseback riding, exploring, working, and mostly talking.  My birthday isn't for a few more days, but it was a great way to celebrate the beginning of my fifth decade on this planet.

I've posted the full selection of pictures here, but a selection of the selection follow:

One thing I messed up on was not getting any pictures of my Grandpa, especially with Caedmon. We did have a long conversation about my grandfather's trip down the Salmon River in 1932/3, supplemented by the satellite photography from Google Maps: View Larger Map

When it comes to Apps Apple come first in line for
new and powerful apps. Crucial characteristics of this smartphone are its Enterprise-ready safety and IT-grade policies which
enable your cellphone to be applied for get the job
done and play. One drawback of this method is that if you
have a limited mobile Internet package, you might be charged for excessive date use, so limit your backups and minimize the data that you back up by sticking to contacts.
