Wildflower Explosion

I hiked up the Harding Icefield Trail the other day and experienced what can only be described as an explosion of color from all the wildflowers. It literally takes your breath away. These lupines were just one of the many species that are covering the mountainside. It's, like, totally awesome. Totally.

Sonja and I also recently went to see "An Inconvenient Truth." It is an incredible film. Go see it. It can, and should, change your life. Al Gore is fantastic in how he presents scientific facts in a very understandable and compelling way. I had no idea he was so personable, passionate and charismatic. I cannot stress enough how much everyone in this country should go see this movie. And be sure to sit through all of the credits.

Did I mention how you must see this film?

Beyond Belief

Ok, I know... it's been over a month since I last posted. No, I'm not still at the Grand Canyon.

But, I just discovered something online that simply must be shared with all of you...something beyond belief. Now, some of you may already be familiar with it, so bear with me. This has got to be one of the coolest things I've seen in a long time. For those of you who were not pre-pubescent boys during the mid-1980's, it's overall impact on your view of the world may not be as profound as it was for me. If you DO fit that description, however, what you will see after clicking on the following link may change your life forever...

(this movie file may take a couple minutes to load...but it's worth it!)

Beautiful, isn't it? Anyway, if you want more info here's the official website.
