In the summer of 2003, Charlotte and I decided to take a trip across the country by rental car (why a rental? Don't ask--it's complicated, dull, and annoying.), stopping at various friends along the way, seeing the sights, and culminating in our annual visit to the Burningman festival in Nevada. This is the diary we kept along the way.
|25-26||Hot Springs AR|
|?||Oklahoma City OK|
|31||Mesa Verde CO|
|?||Grand Canyon AZ|
|11-13||Los Angeles CA|
|16-24||San Francisco CA|
|24-Sept 1||Black Rock City NV|
|2||Salt Lake City UT|
For the impatient, here are the photos (I hope):
A horned lizard we saw when we stopped near Canyon de Chelly to pee.
Charlotte looking cute at Navajo tourist trap the Four Corners Monument. We simply couldn't bring ourselves to wait in line to stand on the intersection. This is as close as we got.
A yard-long snake we spotted during a tour of Mesa Verde ruins.
One more picture I'm saving to use as an illustration for an upcoming story.
We hit an internet cafe in Moab today, and I used Netspace's lifesaving SSH applet to do a little mending around here. A couple nagging markup errors were corrected, and--after finding a reference in the blosxom documentation--I used touch to fake the modification date on the entries so they'd appear in the proper order.
