And I shall have some peace there, for peace comes dropping slow

Jen and I took a little break from the big city and went to Sequoia last week.

We saw pretty trees and bushes . . .

  1. that picture of jen on a log looks like it was taken straight from my 70s northern arizona childhood. smokey the bear and the crying indian must have been hiding just outside the frame.

    My favorite is the one of tiny person, BIG tree. It looks truly grand.

    Oh Tim and Jen, how I yearn to meet your foxy selves in person.

    It’s weird, I had imagined you with a long mane and a big Jeremiah Johnson beard. **Wait*, that’s how you look on your profile.

    Did you bury your T.P.?

    I agree with Bryan–there’s a certain 70s sheen to those photos… If I say anything else here, I’ll definitely be called out for my nature-hating ways, so I’ll just say–photos (and greatwhatsit posts) are among my favorite ways to experience nature!

  5. Tim Wager says:

    Jen did remark that the trees and mosses were looking very 70s when we were out in the woods, but I think the retro sheen of the photos comes from the cheap disposable we were using (the digital camera we have is heavy, and I didn’t want to risk damaging it). The colors came out warm and dark. Also, I had to scan in the prints, so there’s a lot more pixelization.

    MarleyFan: No, we didn’t bury our T.P. That’s all I’ll say. Parrish is very squeamish about this sort of thing, and she doesn’t like it when I go into detail.

    Shucks, Rachel, just come on out to Cali for a visit!

    ah the beauty of nature

  8. cynthia says:

    brian, no just lovin the pics. I love nature and the chance for peace and harmony. Jeremy, why hate nature? Their is a lot said for being out in nature. I do agree that the pictures have a 70’s look.

  9. jeremy says:

    cynthia, i don’t really hate nature. but, you can read more here.

  10. cynthia says:

    Thanks Jeremy, I will. I just have never heard of anyone actually hating nature. I try to relay to my students the importance and beauty of nature.

  11. cynthia says:

    at a quick glance Jeremy it sounds like you hate camping more than nature or more specifically koa camping.

  12. Jeremy Zitter says:

    at a less-quick glance, cynthia, you’ll see it’s not just about camping but, yes, that’s part of it…

    (sorry, didn’t mean to distract from tim’s lovely post today.)

    These photos are like John Denver meets Jonathan Livingston Seagull . . . I feel a Time-LIfe AM Gold CD order coming on. Very enjoyable.

  14. Stephanie Wells says:

    As for the part Parrish doesn’t like you to talk about, didn’t you already elaborate on that in your title?

  15. Tim Wager says:

    Oh, man! Why didn’t *I* think of that?

  16. cynthia says:

    Jeremy, at a closer reading I do see what you mean.
