Heh... you can bet it snows here.

Here are some of my little brothers enjoying what winter has to offer.

Six weeks at an archeology field camp is the very defintion of 'desolate place'.

Fly in and fly out in same day doesn't count. Gotta spend the night somewhere to claim one has actually "been" there.

Yeah, but that's half the town's population!

Oh, I was just referring to that particular trip (though there was a lot of driving involved that time, so I saw a fair little cross section of the Eastern part of the state).

I just returned from a trip to north Florida. This is the view from just outside my cabin of a sunrise over the Suwannee River.



A little to the north, the Suwannee and Withlacoochee Rivers converge. This is the spot.

It was pretty cold, but I had a marvelous time.

Wow! That is an attractive piece of Florida.

I've never really traveled here, which makes me feel hell-a guilty. I've never been to the Everglades, I've never seen Okeechobee, and I've definitely never been as far north as the Suwannee.

How cold did it get up there? It has been freaking sweltering down here lately. Very un-christmasy.

Yeah, it is pretty, isn't it? It got down to 28 degrees on Sunday night and then progressively warmer. I think the last night I was there it was about mid-30s when I got up. Daytime temps stayed in the 50s until the last day, then in the 60s. Very nice, that cobalt blue sky in some of my photos.

Some beauty is just what you needed after the real estate deal from hell.
