Look Out !609 viewsTaken 4/6/06
While driving along the Saddle Road that goes between Mauna Kea and Mauna Loa, my Brother and I encountered this warning sign.

On The Wrong Track617 viewsTaken 1/11/05
This photo taken along the Union Pacific Tracks by the Arroyo Las Posas in Somis, CA. After 5 days of heavy rain (14.38 inches at my station in Altadena) this river undermined the tracks and left them hanging high and dry. Unfortunately it took Fiber Optic Cables with it. AT&T, MCI, Sprint and Level 2 all experienced outages related to this slide.
