Los Angeles, CA. January, 2010.

I was taken on a breezy tour of the Jim Henson Company Lot several years ago. Along the way, I spotted a curious impression in the cement. Turns out the location I was standing in used to be the film studio that Charlie Chaplin completed in 1919. Many of his most famous films were shot there.

(I also inadvertently stole Paul F. Tompkins’s parking spot that day, too.) 📷🗺

My wife and I took a nice little trip to Laguna Beach out here in California. It felt pretty hot, but it was nice to get outside and under the sun for a while. It had some great rock formations and even a kraken! 🏖

I really don’t ever want to live in Los Angeles, but sometimes the view from its high spots make the trips there worth it. This was taken during my first and (so far) only trip to the Griffith Observatory. Gosh, that was such a fun day! 📷🗺

I went to Washington, D.C. in 2014. This was my first time traveling anywhere east of Utah in my own country. The trip was wonderful. Full of tasty food, amazing museums, and great sights. This one was taken at the WWII memorial. 📷🗺

In the winter of 2010, I saw a whole lot of real snow for the first time in my life. It led to me being able to stand on a beautiful frozen lake in Ukmergė, Lithuania. The entire place sounded like frozen crystals. 📷🗺

I spent a small amount of nice time in Ukmergė back in 2010. It’s a small-ish city in Lithuania, full of nice people, a fascinating history, and really peaceful community gardens. 🗺📷

I’ve got travel on the mind, apparently, so I’ll keep the pictures coming. This one is a bit more local—Mt. Rubidoux in Riverside, CA. The hike up to the top is fun and the sights along the way are captivating. On a clear day, the view is lovely in every direction. 📷🗺

I was thinking about a nice recent trip up to Big Bear Lake and recalled a moment when the world was nothing but trees and clouds. 📷🗺🏕
