Dramatis persona*

helenhead Helen Chick

I've always wanted a bumper sticker that said "I'm a female, LDS/Mormon, Scout leading, geocaching, piano-playing, bicycling, mathematics educator with a PhD in maths ... and I VOTE"!

A rather cloudy August 23—and some good timing—allowed me to capture the summit peeking out […]

Moods of the Mountain #91

Snow and Bridgewater Jerry on a chilly winter’s morning.

The following day — at a similar time — some of the snow had melted and a bank of cloud was scudding southward across the summit.

Moods of the Mountain #90

Today there was a lovely winter sunrise over the mountain. The sun, which was rising behind me, first lit up the clouds.
