In 2001, I was still using my first-ever digital camera. It was a Fuji MX-600 which felt pretty darn awesome at the time. Sadly, its 1280x1024 "high resolution" mode seems a bit pathetic now. The photos aren't great, but the memories are wonderful.
- Halfway through my cycle trip of New Zealand, I hiked up the alien slope of a volcano. The day began undercast with the harsh sun reflecting off the clouds below. This is the most substantial hike I have ever completed wearing tevas.
- Firetower on top of Mt Everett. Hiked the day after Thanksgiving to work off my aunt's turkey.
- This was my third Boston->New York AIDS ride, this time participating as a bike mechanic. I learned that being a wrench is just as exhausting as riding, but at least the fundraising requirement is nil.
- The frost on Lafayette left the whole mountain looking like something under a scanning microscope. The edges of everything were probabilistic and scaled strangely. Meaningfully, this was the first of many NH hikes featuring me, dr_sunflare, and kaya.
- Mandatory dog photo, this time from Mt Moosilauke. I like the way the frost just barely forms on her whiskers.
Oh, and a bonus photo which doesn't fit into the pinwheel layout. It rained the day after I moved into my new place in the South End. Hard. My guests and I watched in horror as water gushed through the windowframes. At least we got a good sunset out of it.
