Boston_023.jpg
Cumulonimbus2121 viewsI was flying back from Boston and got a chance to see some spectacular weather from the air. We were heading West over Arizona and the hot afternoon Sun was creating some beautiful Cumulonimbus clouds. We were flying at approximately 32,000 Feet and the Thermal Convection was driving these clouds well above us. Taken July 23, 2007.

Tampico Trauma2119 viewsThis is the Old Harbor at San Felipe. Located some 120 Miles below the border in Baja California, it is one of my favorite camping spots. The fishermen used to sail into and out of the Harbor only at High Tide when the harbor would fill with water. They now have a New Harbor just South of Town. Taken 2/21/06

Taking A Ride2119 viewsAfter Antenna #2 was cleaned and lubed, it was used to carry traffic for Antenna #1 while it was cleaned. Then it was moved to the East, to track the 307° Satellite in place of Antenna #3 while it was cleaned up.

Two Times The Fun2109 viewsThis image clearly makes me think we have more than one bear visiting Holly Slope Rd. This ones color is more black and has what appears to be a White Chest Blaze. Maybe they are a couple?

2106 viewsBecause of the time difference, most of the Olympic Events occurred during the nighttime hours at Triunfo Pass. But we were staffed 24 hours a day and ready for anything.

Building A Burm2101 viewsBuilding A Burm taken 12/30/05
Several storms out in the Pacific were beginning to affect Northern California with heavy rain. These same storms were causing heavy surf all along the coast. A large west-northwest swell continued to affect the outer coastal waters of Southern California today. Breakers of 8 to 12 feet, with locally higher sets, pounded the coastline. In thid photo, Los Angeles City Fire Dept Bulldozers build a burm of sand to protect the businesses and residences along Venice Beach.

Skeleton2096 viewsLarge birds had access to the RF Rooms via the Feed Tubes for quite some time. The rooms were littered with their droppings, as well as the carcasses and skeletons of their prey.

After the RF Room was cleaned, the Feed Tube was sealed to keep the birds out.

JPL Under Siege2089 viewsThursday 8/27 around 8:45 PM. Lynne and I went down to the Arroyo to see how the fire was going. It was an eerie sight to see the fire extending along the ridge behind JPL. It didn't look like it was going to get any better soon.
