We attended the Denver Zombie Crawl about 10 days ago.  But I thought the photos were more appropriately saved for Halloween.......So let's get started.

First a Disturbing trend among Zombies.........Using Cell Phones (OMG)!

How could any self-respecting Zombie choose to "stay connected!"

Calendar 2013: Winter Scene Options

My Only Red Rocks winter Options (thus far) are below.  Three from Eldorado Canyon State Park and one of the Flatirons from Table Mesa.  I say thus far, because we are having our first significant snow fall tonight.  If I see a good opportunity I'll go out Thursday morning with the Mamiya 6 and see what I find.

 Eldorado Canyon #2

Flatirons 1: From Table Mesa

I'm leaning towards the last two, but thought I would give you all of the options.  All taken with the Mamiya 6X6 while it was snowing.

Finding the Real Jethro Tull?

So 70's Rock fans will remember the band "Jethro Tull'.  But have you ever wondered whether there was a REAL Jethro Tull?  Well, there was:

My little hike around the Park included an agricultural display that answered that question:

Finishing My Degree......

Some of you may know that I've been working on a graduate degree in geographical information systems/civil engineering, amid all the other events of the past 2-3 years.  So I will finally be graduating in December.

Some of you also know that I am now working in the remote sensing field.  So of course for my final research project involves analysis of satellite imagery.  Recently I went to visit my actual study area which is very near my home:

It was such a pleasant day ( a week ago) I thought I would share it with you.  Cool and perfect for a little hike after my work was done.......

My research focus is monitoring the spread of parasites affecting the Ponderosa Pines in the Front Range Foot Hills.  In particular a nasty little beast called dwarf mistletoe............

I'm working with Jefferson County Parks and Open Spaces......and this is what we are trying to save, 80+ year old second growth Ponderosas.  Mountain Pine beetle is also in the area and I'll be looking for that too.

Just thought I'd bring you up to date on my life's little journey..........I also discovered some interesting history which I'll share tomorrow.

It was a Great Gardening Year!

The Zucchini had a last gasp that will not be fulfilled:

However, we had a bountiful year in spite of the mid summer temperatures in excess of 100 degrees.....

I harvested these last few peppers before this weekends expected hard freeze................

More pix on the way, but sine this is primarily a film site, you'll have to wait...........
