Modernity meets Antiquity in Garmisch, Germany

Tractors and old farming practices still exist in southern Germany.

The Mighty Owyhee

We experienced what its like to wake up in the middle of the night as water from a natural water dam broke above us during heavy spring rains on this trip. The clear, blue sky in this picture doesn't represent the unease we all felt during the 14,000 CFS, high water trip.

Here Fishy Fishy

Here, Michael is pointing out the fin on a 'Half Pounder' immature steelhead on the Rogue River.

Vineyards in Bordeaux

Three trips to France in the last year yielded some great photos, a few great wines, and more than a few wines that went down the hotel sink. Yes, it's true, you have to spend more than $12 USD for a decent bottle of Bordeaux to get it down your throat.

Strudel the Asthmatic Cat

Wolvita would like to introduce you to Strudel the Asthmatic cat. Strudel is, quite possibly, the most expensive alley cat on the planet. To date, he has ripped up three shades in the house, racked up $3000 in vet bills, and scratched up the leather couch. He remains, however, one of the coolest cats in the northern hemisphere.
