a summertime tr

post #1 of 17
Thread Starter 

As labor day passes, I figured I'd share a few photos from the summer.  I figure if we count summer starting with memorial day weekend, we'll even be able to put up some ski (related) pitchers.

With a pregnant wife much of this summer was low-duty.  

Traditionally, ski season ends and summer begins with Dakota at Tioga pass.

We actually left the Sierra and spent a week on the Metolius River in Camp Sherman, OR with my wife's parents.  Due to them being in-laws and my wife becoming increasingly pregnant over the summer, we kept this trip pretty low-duty.

but more often, time slips away these days, with a baby on the way and a new dog I'll introduce some other time, I search for beauty in other, closer places

Thanks for readin'

 

(not sure why the landscape orientations are so small)

@sugarcube, thank you.  The dog's name is Esme.  The kid's name is (probably) Aiden.

Esme is a little shy of the camera.  She was dumped on the highway and then hit by a car.

The kid, well, I don't know how he'll be at the camera, but I'm sure there'll be lots of pitcher-takin.

 

@trish...  Thanks for stoppin' here and at the shop.  I agree, we have to get together for dinner sometime.  I do have a show/reception coming up at The Olde Bridge Pub next month.

 

 

again, I'm not sure why the horizontal orientation shots are so little.  I did everything the same as usual.  If you like a pitcher and wanna see it bigger, clicking apparently works, also, you can visit my website at chadbrownimages.com.  These are all hosted in some gallery or another.

If I understand correctly.....There was a glitch in the last software upgrade but if you click on the images in the post, you can see them full size.

Sweet.

Very nice photos, Splitter. Hard to pick one to feature on the homepage. Hope you like what I selected. 

 

We went on a nice hike on an abandoned railroad grade along the Sluice Boxes of Belt Creek (MT) on Labor Day. Here are our friends at the end of one tunnel:

I will NEVER understand why people do this to helpless animals.  How cool that you found Esme and took her into your hearts and home!  beercheer.gif

Our cat was given to us by an anonymous highway donor as well. rolleyes.gif He's a purring fool now that he has a home.

It always makes me shake my head.  Glad to know that these found a loving home.

For anyone in the Tahoe area, it is a true pleasure to attend a showing of Splitter's.  You must but it on your "to do" list.

 

I'm hoping that we can get Splitter to come out and play with us during the EpicSki Gathering!

Thanks for the comments.  Nice to hear about your kitty nolo.  The link on the front page looks good to me.  What a surprise!

 

My wife wasn't sure how to feel about me bringing home a puppy with a broken pelvis 2 months before we have a baby, but she didn't put up too much of a fight.  She thinks Esme is pretty cute as well.

 

Thanks Trish for the plug.  I don't imagine this opening is going to be quite as big of a 'to-do' as the first you and phil and bud came to.  In fact, I don't know that I'm going to make a big deal of a reception.  Hell, I gotta get some prints ordered here.  I hang the stuff on the 27th and I don't have hardly anything ready to go.
