This is probably one of the coolest pics I have seen capturing lightning. Click the picture itself to see the original location and size, and further explanation on why the recent Iceland volcanic eruption caused so much ash.
Some Summer Hike Pictures
One of our outings when I was on vacation a couple of weeks ago was a short hike at Borderland State Park in Easton, MA – going on one of the few great days weather-wise we’ve had this summer thus far. A great place to hike with small kids, and it was the first time testing my foot and ankle since spraining it in June – did quite well. Enjoy the pics…

First Hike Of The Season
Out In the Snow (Finally!)
Well we finally had a snowstorm that produced enough snow that we could get out this weekend for our first snowshoe hike. I bought our snowshoes in November, and of course now we’re in late February before we got to use them for the first time. We had one good storm in December, but the next few days were warm, so there was nothing by that weekend.
It was a good outing (despite some technical difficulties with the sled we were pulling our three year old son on). Here are a couple of pictures I took of the local scenery.
If you click the pictures above, you’ll see one that is wider angled has two stars visible. The one to the left is actually the planet Saturn. The other bright one above is Regulus, in the constellation Leo.
Pretty cool stuff… although the natives in this story didn’t think so…
