We-hell, looks like I brought warm sunny days with me to Seattle! I've spent time on the beach and have achieved freckle-merge, something it was always too humid to do in Oklahoma.

I'm living on top of a hill a few blocks away from Green Lake, the most loved-to-death glacial lake in the city. Just got hooked up to @Home and am catching up on 143 emails (well, I would be if I weren't being Foolish, anyway).

The big idea was to move here for greater high-tech opportunities, but in the midst of all this "real" life, I'm finding the prospect of slavery to a computer distasteful. If that sounds like an excuse to extend a vacation and go back to the beach, it is!
I've decided to leave my professional fate in the hands of a very competent recruiter for the time being.

The drive out was wonderful. I was indeed a very dangerous driver around Glenwood Springs, Colorado. The only thing that kept my eyes on the road was a guy on a vintage Harley tooling down the road ahead of me - didn't want to squash the purdy bike or biker. And bless me, I loved the drive across Highway 51 in Nevada. I never even knew Great Basin National Park existed, but it sure looks like an Alpine oasis amidst well, Nevada. From the area around Goose Lake, California, I looked behind me and saw Mt. Shasta clear as anything.

I'm looking forward to going to North Cascades National Park to see all the messed-up metamorphics.
I might even start collecting rocks again.
