This is a place for beer, politics and random geeky shit. Despite the name we are actualy not snobbish at all around here.
is horrible and ugly and the beer is terrible. Stay away.
(Note, I have no idea who the tiny people are in the waterfall photo. They do help to show the scale though.)
was that where you were csmping? ALMOST worth it.
Yep. That's Clear Lake (one of many named that, unsurprisingly) and Sahalie Falls on the McKenzie River. We camped by the lake, the falls are a couple miles away via a really nice trail.
FIRE UP THE BASSOONS!!!
CAMPFIRE UP THE BASSOONS!!!
if you have a campfire up the bassoon, perhaps you should consult your proctologist.
"Feeling a little flat? Are your sharps not as crisp as they should be? You may have campfires up the bassoon. Try new Garnobulax! Guaranteed to have you back in tune faster than any other brand. (Side effects may include: minor death, extreme flatulence, eyeball bees, hair loss, hair growth, and sniffles. ) Ask your doctor about Garnobulax today!"
Having a problem with th arrival of summer here...I think we're getting San Francisco's climate silliness.
It's been a strange year here too -- we had summer weather back in April, but it's been 65 degrees and raining here since Sunday (those pictures were taken last Friday and Saturday). By this coming Friday it's supposed to be in the mid 90s and continue like that all week.
What is this "summer" whereof you speak?
S'posed to be 97 (F) here today. Woo. Makes me want to travel to upsidedownland.
Stop talking about it & do something about it!!Pikers. Our cooling centers for the air-conditioning deprived elderly are already open. (Hope there's WiFi & AC power.) We're expecting triple digits nearby.And we have a waterfall too, in our Griffith Park. It's at least 15 ft. high, & during the rainy season it's sometimes left on for entire wks. at a time. Otherwise it's a rock face w/ plenty of algae or mold or whatever & water dripping down it.
Stop talking about it & do something about it!!I'd love to do something about the weather, but all my yelling at the sky is for naught.And we have a waterfall too, in our Griffith Park.

Otherwise it's a rock face w/ plenty of algae or mold or whatever & water dripping down it.That waterfall is one of several on the McKenzie river in the Cascade mountains a couple hours from here. It's fed from springs under huge lava flows so it looks like that pretty much constantly. The water at the source stays just above the freezing point most of the year, so the lake is super clear (and the campground well water is sublime).And people sometimes fall and/or jump off the cliff at the top and die messily on the rocks below, so that's a bonus.
Too hot. My igloo is melting.
OK. Officially Impressed by Oregon.
It's horrible, but somebody's got to live here.
By commenting here you're legally bound to buy me lots of yummy beer.
