Yosemite in the winter

After a 12-hour-long, snow-delayed Amtrak trip from Truckee to Merced, I picked up an AWD SUV and tire chains to venture into Yosemite National Park in the snow. I had my trusty Fuji X-E2 and captured some photos of Yosemite in all its majesty.

Squaw Valley

Tahoe is having a record year for snow this year, and last week I was able to hit the slopes at Squaw Valley. Squaw Valley is one of the largest ski areas in the U.S. and was the host of the 1960 Winter Olympics. I had my Fuji X-E2 and took some photos. It was awesome.

Stranger Things

The latest Netflix original series, Stranger Things, is my new favorite kidventure-thriller ever. It’s obviously inspired by E.T., The Goonies, The Shining, Alien, et al., and it plays out brilliantly.

Stardew Valley for Mac

I played Stardew Valley (88/100 on Metacritic), an RPG-style farming game with beautiful pixel art, earlier this year and absolutely loved it.

Uncharted 4

Every ’90s kid wants to be Indiana Jones – treasure hunting in booby-trapped tombs while fighting bad guys. In Uncharted, the action-adventure third-person shooter-platformer for Sony Playstation, Nathan Drake is the new Indiana Jones.

Weblog design with Jekyll

It’s been nearly a year since I’ve touched this weblog. The other day I started on a redesign — here it is so far.
