In the winter of 1985 I was driving through the Mojave Desert with a friend, talking about our apparent need for new river gear. As we passed the Twenty Nine Palms Marine Base, a man unexpectedly appeared on the side of the road selling used ammo cans. My friend and I laughed wildly and quickly came to realize that the moment was "All In A Days' Karma". This blog contains the occasional ramblings of a died-in-the-wool westerner who loves seeing, understanding, and being alive upon these landscapes. I cherish the moments of bliss and irony that come to all of us as we explore the planet and its residents (and perhaps visitors) in the short time we are here.

A Fantastic Weather Graphic That Will Blow Your Mind

A friend sent me this link recently from the Capital Weather Gang. It is a time lapse movie of the northern hemisphere weather from August 1 to November 1. It shows how the atmosphere moves by imaging smoke from western fires in Montana and British Columbia (white), dust from the Sahara Desert (brown), and salt spray picked up from wind over the oceans (blue).
