Turkey Trip Day 5: That hoodoo that you do so well

On Thursday, we headed out to valley outside of Goreme that’s known for its fairy chimneys, also known as hoodoos. Per Wikipedia, hoodoos “typically consist of relatively soft rock topped by harder, less easily eroded stone that protects each column from the elements.” In the case of the hoodoos in Cappadocia (the region of Turkey where Goreme is), the rock...

Turkey Trip Day 4: And then there were camels

Let’s just say that, of all of the things that I expected of this trip, that getting the guys to ride camels would NOT have been on that list. It’s not that they’re not adventurous–I mean, they ARE here with me. Heck, they willingly live with me. That alone requires at least a rudimentary sense of...

Turkey Trip Day 3: When in Rome, do what the Romans do. When in Istanbul, jaywalk!

I have a confession to make. I was a total idiot and opted not to bring a laptop on this trip, opting instead to use the WordPress app on my phone. And indeed, it worked FLAWLESSLY… for the first day’s post. Yesterday’s post crashed on me and messed up the text and photos about...

Turkey Trip Day 2: Time traveling through Byzantium, Constantinople, and Istanbul

NOTE: After working flawlessly for the first post, the blogging app I’m using has decided to crash about 40 times as I’ve been writing this. So not only is this post late, but the formatting and pics are all messed up. I’ll fix it when I get back to a computer. Right now I...

Canola, or Maybe Mustard

I have to admit, I can't really identify any of the plants that grow in the Palouse.  It's not like the Midwest where I grew up, corn and soybeans are pretty easy to tell apart.  I don't know wheat from lentils.  I initially assumed that...

Turkey Trip Day 1: Not Constantinople!

Believe it or not, I’m resurrecting this thing temporarily. I figure travel is as good an excuse as any, and we’re going to be in Turkey for the next 12 days, so why not? :-) This trip all started in April when I got my usual itchy travel feet and discovered this amazing invention...

Isolated Thunderstorm

I often hear the weather forecast mention isolated thunderstorms, but don't see them that much. Especially not in such a dramatic setting as the descent to the Snake River separating Lewiston, Idaho and Clarkston, Washington. The river is also consider...

Palouse Study #3

Continuing my Palouse series with a cheery crayola scene... Visiting the Palouse, I got a sense of the region right away, but conveying that sense in a photograph has been tricky for me. I think it helps to have a subject in the frame; it still shows t...
