Finding Oregon on Vimeo

Two cool videos.

Finding Portland on Vimeo:

The creators of these videos estimate it took about about 4 hours of work for each finished 1 second of the Finding Portland time-lapse video - 51 days of shooting and almost 309,000 individual hots. 

I really like riding my motorcycle in Oregon, driving there, taking the train or awhile back riding my bicycle to Portland for the STP (which is going on today and tomorrow). I'm throwing in a photo I took of Crater Lake so there's something for the thumbnail view on the front page of this blog.

Buffy The Bear

These pictures are from a trip to Montana in the early 90's. We were staying at Chico Hot Springs and the girls were playing Marco Polo in the pool with some other little girls. Their uncle Ben Mikaelsen, who was an author, owned a bear - named Buffy. He invited us to visit his house on Bozeman Pass to see his bear. He signed a couple of his books for the girls - "Rescue Josh McGuire" and "Sparrow Hawk Red". That's Betsy kissing the bear while Becca and one of the nieces watch.
