A and I braved the backwoods of Indian Cave State Park this weekend. If we haven't told you already, the two of us will be driving up to and around in Alaska for 5 weeks this summer, hiking and tenting. We wanted to try out some of the new equipment we got for it. Turns out Indian Cave doesn't have any water, so we still don't know how to work the water filter.

Julie's beautiful photographs make me happy. They are of an alternate memory I have. Check out the whole lot.
Today is the day I grade final portfolios until my arms fall off. So I don't have a lot to say, or time to say it. If I can get them done, A, G, and I will go camping this weekend and I will tell you about that. It will be fun. But while you wait, maybe you should watch my new favorite music video. It is Dokken's Into the Fire. I want you to notice the seemingly random, but highly maintained and controlled pockets of fire, the fake snow coming down in a single stream, the seamless integration of helicopters and speedboats, and the spinning decent into Hell, where a giant 12 fingered Satan hand prop awaits all members of Dokken while they never stop shredding a very complex solo on their axes.
