A Delicate Dance Along The Way To Tikal

Rolling into Flores as late as we did I stressed finding a decent hotel. Not to worry: La Casona de la Isla, a little boutique hotel (a term I use very loosely for Guatemala) came complete with hot showers, an air conditioner, two beds, a pool, wifi (for father’s epic iPhone addiction) and a lovely [...]

Mayan Roads, Mayan Fog, Mayan Whispers

Up at 530. Cold shower. Teeth a-chattering. Clothed. Grab bags. On way to airport. Arrived. Ticketed. Take shoes off. Security. On the jetway.

Then we wait inside the plane—almost a full hour—for clearance to take off from the brand new tarmac of El Salvador’s national airport.

“I’m not impressed with the airline,” said my Dad.

Surfing, Theoretical Mathematics And Jesus

First morning in El Salvador. Got the drop on three waves, didn’t ride them long. Out of shape and out of practice. Surfing is decidedly not like riding a bike. You lose skills when you don’t use them. But it was fun. As a buddy I met at Popoyo in 2009 says, “El Tunco’s a [...]

What to Do When a Blue Jay Isn’t Blue?

Here is a photographic collection, so far, of all the “jays” I’ve seen in the world. Seven of the eight come from the Western Hemisphere, but one is from India and is called the Indian Tree Pie. We’ll start with him:

You can see the rest here.

From 56 to 58: Vaqueros, Volcanoes and the Voice of the Road

December 17, 2013: Pelicans glide inches above the cresting waves. The rising sun glistens pinkish and oblique across the Pacific Ocean and carries me back to yesterday, where we left Granada about 930am—Hernán was with us—and the driver was a big, giant of a man whose hands never left the ten and two o’clock position [...]

Up The Isthmus on a Promise

Woke up yesterday and immediately jumped into an ice cold shower: penance for my lack of vigilance the night before. You see, it’s been, what, four years since I’ve been on the road like this? A long time to lose critical skills like remembering to ask the hotelier (more like a roach motel, but hey) [...]

For the story behind the day read here. Make sure to double click the link as sometimes it hangs.

Big Bend National Park Photo Dump

We took the kids down to the national park today. It was as splendid as ever, if seriously drought stressed, more so than I have ever seen. Funny thing about the desert: if you’d never seen it before you probably wouldn’t know it was drought stressed, but if, like me, you have, you’d notice [...]

Big Bend Country, Day Two Photo Dump

We visited Marfa and the surrounding area today. We are off to Big Bend National Park tomorrow, which will be an all day trip, posting tomorrow is doubtful.

Today’s photos, about 50, begin here. The full set can be found here.

Also, for those of you who have asked to see a photo of [...]

Fort Davis Mountains Photo Dump

I had a great day with The Brunette and her kids. We spent the day in the Fort Davis Mountains. We’ll do a Star Party at the McDonald Observatory tomorrow night.

There are close to 100 photos. The full set can be found here and the beginning photo starts here.

Enjoy!
