Colorado photo bonanza

Almost a month behind schedule, I have finally compiled and edited the best of the photos that I took during my trip to Colorado last month, which you can see on the hand point Colorado 2009 photo gallery. That page contains two distinct sets of photos, the first of which covers Brainerd Lake (August 10) and Boulder (August 11), and the second of which covers Rocky Mountain National Park (August 12). The terrain is incredibly diverse, and I tried to include photos that were representative of the various elevations and ecological zones. There are a couple animal photos, and I may add some photos of flowers and insects later on. In order to handle the large number (22) of photos more efficiently, I created a new interactive system for displaying just one photo at a time; just click on the camera icons (camera). At the bottom of that page are links to two other pages with previously-posted photos: Birds of August, 2009 and Coors Field.

Previously, I had posted the first batch of photos from my road trip on August 16 (baseball), and the second batch on August 18 (Washington, D.C.). Obviously, school and other duties have taken priority over my photo journals. All that is left to do from my Great 2009 Road Trip are photos from various points of interest I visited on the way out west, and then back again.

blog highlights

Blog highlights have been compiled for the years 2010-2012 thus far, and eventually will be compiled for earlier years, back to 2002.


The "home made" blog organization system that I created was instituted on November 1, 2004, followed by several functional enhancements in subsequent years. I make no more than one blog post per day on any one category, so some posts may cover multiple news items or issues. Blog posts appear in the following (reverse alphabetical) order, which may differ from the chronological order in which the posts were originally made:

  1. Wild birds (LAST)
  2. War
  3. Science & Technology
  4. Politics
  5. Latin America
  6. Culture & Travel
  7. Canaries ("Home birds")
  8. Baseball (FIRST)
