I love to learn about the people, places, history, and environment around me. I try to share that here. Here's what I've been up to:
We managed to fit in a short walk while avoiding everyone, and I brought my camera along. The fog from Lake Michigan is one of my favorite parts of living here; today, it blanketed everything in an eerie quiet.
Driving 0 to 10,000 feet for a mountaintop sunset and world-class stargazing in an open-topped Jeep.
A short hike outside Toledo brings us to one of the most epic views in all of Spain for our last full day in the country.
Roman aqueducts, incredible cuisine, beautiful Spanish architecture, all surrounded by stunning views. All 30 minutes away from Madrid. Segovia feels like cheating.
We booked a room 30 seconds after seeing that it was possible. If you can wake up and sip coffee over Plaza Mayor, you do it.
Scenes from a morning walk around the center of my favorite city on earth.
We’re going to Madrid tonight, and I had the brilliant idea of shorting myself on comfortable bed sleep in exchange for bumpy airplane sleep.
The view from the Adler Planetarium is one of my favorite views of Chicago – the kind of thing you picture when you want to sit and think in front of an epic backdrop.
My favorite shots from this year’s rainy Air and Water Show, still one of my favorite days every year to be in Chicago.
