Hiking Down to the Black Lake 

Yesterday I went up to the Black Lake. Had lunch and then decided to go up to the Frozen Lake. It’s like probably another couple thousand feet in altitude gain. On the way back you get this fabulous view of Black Lake right under you. Check my short video descending down to it


Mills Lake 

Fresh one from a hike earlier today. Went almost all the way to the Frozen Lake, it’s probably another 3 or so miles from this spot, straight up there in the mountains. On the way you have to pass the Mills Lake. All under good solid ice right now.

Hillside Beauties 

Always an eye catcher. White walls and red tiled roofs stacked on the hillside.

Speak French?

On a quick day trip to Montreal and everyone speaks French to me. I don’t speak a word. Not sure if they are disappointed or not.

It’s been snowing on and off for the last 24 hours. Pretty cool. Also people are out all about doing their stuff. It’s nice. Down south it would paralyze most everyone and everything.

Lisboa City Sunset

A few months ago I was visiting Lisbon on a short business trip and on my free evening hiked up to the Castelo de S. Jorge to see the city from above and watch the sunset. It has nice open view to the west and across the Rio Tajo in Almada the Cristo de Rei monument is very striking with the colorful sunset background. See slightly different interpretation on my Instagram feed.
