Yosemite HD from Project Yosemite on Vimeo.

For those of you spending your day in a cubicle hunched over your keyboard staring at a computer screen (me), this timelapse video of Yosemite is worth the 4 minutes.  The stars. The fog. Half Dome. Awesome.

For a little piece on how they did this, go here.

I believe I can fly

What is it with the French doing crazy things at crazy heights?  Watching the guy at the end of this trailer with no shirt, no chute, no bungee is… nerve wracking.

I Believe I can Fly ( flight of the frenchies). Trailer from sebastien montaz-rosset on Vimeo.

The Rez

November 19, 2011 § 2 Comments

About a year an a half ago one of our very best friends from college moved with her husband, who is a doctor, out to the middle of the Navajo Nation in Arizona so he could work at the local hospital. Last Thursday three of us met up in Albequerque and made the four hour drive out to Chinle (pronounced chin-lee) to visit the two of them along with their two year old daughter and brand new baby, who was born in September.

Our hosts were gracious enough to let us stay for three whole days (God knows why).  Our weekend consisted of:

adorable babies

 crowns, tutus, ballet, and bollywood aerobics (it’s the two-year-old’s favorite dance video)
 some hiking
 along big canyon walls
 to the bottom of canyon de chelly
 playing in the dirt
a trip to the swap meet (us in front of the house getting ready to go)
 a drive through the desert
 to monument national park
 where i learned that if you get out of the car to take pictures of goats
 your “friends” will drive about 8 miles an hour 5 feet in front of you so you can’t get back in the car, which is really fun
 there were some amazing rocks
 and amazing colors
 and amazing skies
 and amazing (?) people
 it was a fantastic trip. i miss everyone. thanks to paul and lisa for hosting. more pics to be posted here shortly.

This has been around a while, but I still watch it when I need a good dose of serenity.  Love.
