Wind and rain most of the weekend. Got a few pictures in the hills north of town today.
I have arrived in Montana and moved into my new place. Posts may still be sporadic until I get settled, but things are going well and getting closer to “normal”. Here’s a shot of the country about 10 miles north of where I am living. I love the rolling hills and mountains around here – looks great even on a cloudy day.
Packing is almost done and the PC is the last thing to go. Tomorrow I hit the road. I will miss many people and things from Seattle but I am looking forward to a great adventure in Montana. I’ll be back to posting and visiting my favorite blogs as soon as I can get the cable company out to the new place. Time to go pack my truck – tomorrow we do 600 miles and 4 mountain passes and I can’t wait to get started!
It has been a very stressful time getting ready to move to Montana. I took a break with good friend and fellow blogger Emily and we visited the International Fountain at Seattle Center. It was just what I needed – relax a little, get some sun, and watch a bunch of kids just being kids.
Sticks was born a few weeks after I moved to the ranch. I have seen him just about every day of his life. Here are a few pictures to mark his second birthday.
About 20 minutes old.
And he’s on his feet!
Out for a walk with his mom…
Exploring on his own…
Wow he grew up fast…
Well, handsome most of the time…
He would do just about anything to get into a picture…
I’ll miss you buddy…
I just got back from my trip to Montana. I was there to interview for a job. I got the job and I will be moving to western Montana in a few weeks. I am very excited but will miss my friends in the Seattle area.
I expect the next month or so to be pretty crazy – I will probably not be posting as regularly as I have been – but once I am settled there should be many pictures from my new home. It is beautiful country for a photographer to explore. Here are a few snapshots from the trip showing the area where I will be living.
Going out on the road for a few days – this will probably be the last post of the week.
I know what you’re thinking. “Mike, how could you do this to us? We need our daily dose of pictures of seagulls, horses, and clouds! How will we go on?” Take a deep breath and look at the warm, fuzzy bunny. Repeat as many times as necessary.
Sticks says, “Yo! C.D. (we call him “Carrot Dispenser”) really needs to get away for a few days. Dat boy needs to be chillin’ like Bob Dylan. Word. We support him 127.3 percent. Psst! We’re just saying that. If you’re in the Woodinville area and can hook us up with that sweet orange crack then he’s dead to us.”
Luka and Abby say, “Whatever. Buh bye. Huh? He’s the carrot guy? Come back soon!!! We’ll miss you!!!”
Annie says, “No. Really. It’s fine. Go. Just go.”
After the coldest April on record the sun and blue skies finally made an appearance over Seattle. Here are a few snapshots from my walk around Gasworks Park.
