Red and White Mountain

Some of the most interesting and colorful geology in the Sierra lies in a region centered in the Convict Creek and McGee Creek watersheds.  The mountains here are composed of brilliant red, white and gray rocks, a stark contrast to the familiar granite that composes most of the Sierra.  Instead of the solid nature of…

Middle Palisade & Finger Lake

The Northeast Face of Middle Palisade is a classic scramble of a 14er within the rugged Palisades subgroup of peaks. The route takes you past stunning Finger Lake, with its turquoise glacial water and towering granite slabs. The route itself is a long and sustained scramble that technically never reaches above third class. The superb…

Mount Agassiz, Columbine Peak and Dusy Basin

I have been to the Palisades twice before but never via South Lake so I figured this would be a great opportunity to see Bishop Pass and Dusy Basin. I started at around 6:30 am and headed up the nice trail, coming across spectacular reflections in the tarns near Long Lake. I continued up through…

Not too late for snow in Sammamish!

I got a call from my mom in Sammamish, WA this evening and she told me that it was snowing hard with several inches of snow on the ground. Sammamish is my hometown and is located 30 minutes east of Seattle near the Cascade foothills and typically receives more snow than Seattle proper. However, snow…

Happy Chanukah!

Yesterday was the first night of Chanukah and to celebrate here is a hilarious video of NBA stars wishing their Jewish fans a happy festival of lights! Today was the last day of classes of the Fall semester! It’s unbelievable how fast it flew by. Now I have to study for one final, take it…

Great Arnold Clip

Such a great clip! Arnold tells it! I saw American Gangster with Denzel Washington and Russell Crowe yesterday. The actors’ performances were great and I thought it was a good movie. Otherwise, it’s basically business as usual around here. I am recovering from the small sickness and I had some good runs this week, but…

Double

Today I worked out at Arrillaga and ran – the double. I feel pretty dehydrated or something right now so I am drinking plenty of water. First I went to Arrillaga and worked the back muscles. It was a good workout as I hit basically all the exercises I like to do in a relatively…

One more to go!

Antitrust is complete! I took the exam this morning. I did my best and I felt good about the exam. Studying for property this evening was rough through. My head was already drained and a lot of the material is not the most interesting in the world. That test will probably be the most challenging…

Antitrust tomorrow

Antitrust exam tomorrow morning at 9 am. We went over old exams and problems today, I think I am as ready as I ever will be. I am going in confident. I will look at the outline one last time tonight. NBA: The Detroit Pistons are in a free-fall losing three games in a row….
