Mt Bachelor


Mt Bachelor Cinder ConeWe decide d to do a Mt Bachelor ascent to get a sunrise shot. So we needed to leave at 5am to get to the base at 5:30am. We climbed for an hour and finally reached the summit where a howling wind and snow was hitting us forcefully parallel to the ground. The blizzard conditions continued to worsen so we decided to decend. Half way down I saw a light in the clouds and Sean (Bagshaw) looked behind us and saw the moon trying to shine through... we looked at each other and decided to run back up! If you'd tried running up a 45 degree snow hill  at 8,000 feet you'd now that this was going to take a while! We finally made it back and was welcomed with the same blizzard conditions but with the potential for some beautiful light shining through. I raced to the tree that you see and fired off a couple of shots before the snow hitting our faces was stinging to the point of being unbearable. Sean took a quick couple of shots including my new facebook picture... thanks Sean. We knew it was time to leave when the snow storm was so severe we couldn't see anything but white. As we desended the wind slowed but the cold remained. Anyway, we finally made it back with this image to show for the effort. It's funny how the image looks calm and peaceful, because it was anything but! Sean's shot of me as my new facebook image will give you an idea of the conditions! This experience was one of the most enjoyable things I've ever experienced... thanks Sean!

Zune and iPod: Most people compare the Zune to the Touch, but after seeing how slim and surprisingly small and light it is, I consider it to be a rather unique hybrid that combines qualities of both the Touch and the Nano. It's very colorful and lovely OLED screen is slightly smaller than the touch screen, but the player itself feels quite a bit smaller and lighter. It weighs about 2/3 as much, and is noticeably smaller in width and height, while being just a hair thicker.
