Red Rock and Lake Mead

    ๐Ÿ“‚ Environment,Running-hiking     # , ,     ๐Ÿ—จ No Comments

When I travel for business I try to mix in some pleasure. In most cases that means taking the weekend at the end of the trip to explore new places around the area. This was the case with my recent trip to Las Vegas. I ended up exploring the Red Rock Canyon andย Lake Mead. Beautiful — Continue reading ยป

When I was growing up in Iran, one of the places I always wanted to visit the Orumieh (Urmia) lake in the north-western part of the country. The lake was known as Rezaieh lake prior to the Islamic revolution in the country. People had amazing stories of biodiversity and beauty in and around the lake. — Continue reading ยป

Hurricane Irene has come and gone causing much damage and destruction in its path. I ended up with a leaky roof and a power outage. Relatively speaking, that's not so bad, except that the power outage lasted for what it seemed like eternity. Of course with the outage came the loss of this site as — Continue reading ยป

It has been an interesting winter season. Here in the Northeast US we've been getting a good dose of the white stuff in what seem to be endless days of snow. No complaints from me. I actually like shoveling the stuff. But as fate had it in for me, I also got to shovel snow — Continue reading ยป

A couple of weeks ago while hiking in the back woods and taking some pictures, I decided to take a picture from the sky. When I looked at the picture afterwards, the deep blue color of the sky really struck me. Hope you enjoy the photo as much as I do. Don't know if the — Continue reading ยป

Sympathy for BP

Is it just me or does the BP boss, Tony Hayward, has one of those faces you feel sorry for? I know, no compassion for BP, but watching the man squirm before the congressional hearing today, I almost felt bad for him. Ok, enough sympathy. Now let's get that Gulf gusher plugged, shall we?   — Continue reading ยป

Pine Mountain, Ridgefield, CT

Hard to believe that I've had a jewel of a hike within a walking distance of my house (where I've lived for year) and I hadn't been to the top of it until a only few of weeks ago. This is a part of a parcel of land that my hometown, Ridgefield, CT, took from — Continue reading ยป
