"crater lake" Discussed on Native America Calling
"Well, our first foods are in crisis. Two of our very important fish species we call them chum and cup to, which were Staples of our ancestors, they were a fish that ran up our rivers and streams at the end of each winter. Very important culturally were given to us as a gift by our creator gamal comps, the ancient of the ancients. They've been on the endangered species now for over 30 years and just continue to decline in population. One of the most important ones, the cop two are now down below. We think about 4000 in the wild. Schwamm below 20,000, they were once here in the millions. So that we also have a serial food which grows in the marshes and on the Lake wetlands called locus, it's really from a lily pot that we dry and treat and it's something that keeps us through the winter and those are poison when they do get enough water to survive. You can't consume them. So it's pretty dire pretty dire. So the water supply is needed to allow these fish and another wildlife to remain strong to remain healthy. And yet you have farmers that want that water supply to provide for their crops. Is that at the heart of this issue right now? Yeah, that is at the heart of it. As I said, all of these changes have resulted in less and less water available. The ecosystem is able to sustain it and it's complex, it comes from the clear cutting of large forests. We had the largest pine forests in western North America here on our reservation at the time of the force termination. When that termination happened, they came in and they cut those forests down pretty quickly. That impacted the water that's in the stays in the ecosystem. It affected the water quality and we have a high phosphorus rich soil base here. Things are very volcanic. Gwas or Crater Lake is close by. We're speaking now with chairman Clayton Dumont junior with the klamath tribes, stay with us. We'll be right back.

If you want to give input on today's conversation about access to clean drinking water, you can call us one 809 9 6 two 8 four 8. Before break, we were talking with chairman Clayton Dumont junior of the klamath tribes in Oregon and he was explaining these competing interests for how water in the klamath basin is managed. And chairman, I want to ask you, what is the current status of the conflict now between the klamath tribes and these local farmers? Is there any resolution in sight? You know, not that I can see. The tribes are involved in a couple of endangered species act lawsuits at the moment with federal agencies over decisions that have been made in part to send water to irrigators while you've got endangered species who don't have enough water to spawn or for the young to survive in. So I have to say as much of the pains me I'm not optimistic at this point. Now, there have been reports of some of these pro farming interests being very hostile, aggressive towards tribal citizens. Can you confirm that? So this quite a history of that actually going back, at least a couple of decades. Unfortunately, these struggles over water have in the past been racialized and I don't want to suggest that that's gone away at all. But some of the more responsible leadership down in the project as well as the tribes have worked to try to keep that tamp down. The irrigator community much like tribal communities are not homogeneous. There's a lot of difference within some are far more strident than others. Now these are, I mean, the climate tribes and their positions and their needs for how those waters are managed. Those are protected by treaties. Are they not? Yes, so we have a treaty in 1864 treaty where we seeded much of Oregon in a large part of Northern California. In exchange for the right to live well on the resources that are available here, which at the time was about 2 million acres by the time of termination that was down to about 800,000 acres, but we retain hunting and fishing and gathering rights on those 800,000 acres. So they are protected by treaty, like I said, they fish have been on the endangered species list for a very long time. But things just continue to decline. We also have quantifiable or quantified state water rights, which date back to time immemorial. So those are superior to any of the ag rights and their in stream rights and in the Lake rights. So trying to hold as much water as we can in the streams. And as I said, many of the irrigators have responded by going to groundwater and mining groundwater. And we begin to see now wells wells sailing, particularly down in the project areas in the farming areas where there were once all these wetlands and lakes. Fish and wildlife at grave risk, so now moving forward chairman, what are your biggest concerns with these water supply issues and how they're all going to play out in the coming years?

"crater lake" Discussed on The Amateur Traveler Podcast
"Again for sponsoring amateur traveler. And then speaking of volcanos, one of the other popular things to do in Antigua is to hike the volcano called pacaya. And bakaya is an active volcano and up until fairly recently kind of a big attraction with it is that you could see flowing lava. Okay. While you hike, which I'm sure is quite a site, I actually haven't done the hike, but it is quite popular. Right now I've heard the lava isn't flowing, but the ground is still hot. You can feel it and they roast marshmallows over it. So I'm sure that's quite interesting. But also there's a great view. I should tell people, if you have a chance to go someplace safely, obviously, where there is flowing lava and you can see it in a controlled and supervised environment. It is pretty amazing. I bet. To be in front of rock that is so hot that it is liquid. And it's 1500°. I've been close enough to lava. Close enough to touch it in smart enough not to. Oh, good. Three feet away from lava, and it's pretty amazing. But there are only certain times you'd want to do it. To get that close. Yeah. And then finally, the one other thing definitely would recommend from Antigua weather, some coffee farms that you can visit. And Guatemala has amazing, amazing coffee. So it's a great place to learn about coffee growing and how that works. So there's a coffee farm called finca la azotea. That I would recommend they do educational visits and it's a beautiful site and it's quite close to the city. Okay. And I can't translate finco the other day. The farm of the village. Oh, okay. Excellent. And so that's about it. That would very well fill a couple days in Antigua. And then from there, I'd say we are off to atlan, which is just about three hours away. Lake attila land, so it's a huge Crater Lake..
"crater lake" Discussed on Out of Bounds Podcast
"Meet people. Yeah. And you know what? I have been kind of blowing it for about ten years because I like skiing dirt and ice. I found out I didn't realize this, but I am so bad at sending myself to ski pal. And there are some people that are so good at, oh yeah, went on the sick cat skiing trip to BC and we scored like the whole week. We didn't even see the sun and it was just like overhead the whole time. And I'm like, oh, shoot. Set myself to rural China and we just like skied on rocks the whole time. And that took me 36 hours to get there and I got sick eating goat meat, but I guess it's the same thing, right? That is not the same thing. That is not the same thing. I think I've just been doing it wrong, but the fact is for me, the cool stories are on the fringe of our sport. And. The fringe just continues to reveal itself, the more I'm in this, there are just so many different people doing what we love. And obviously, our sport has been pretty restrictive in the past when we're talking about barriers to entry and just the rising costs of our sport. But it is really refreshing and nice to find people who find a way, right? Yeah. Well, one of the coolest stories I ever wrote was about this East German dude who, when the wall fell, his family could not figure out their financial situation, like so many east Germans, and they booked it to a commune in Namibia in Africa. And this is going to come around, I swear. That's okay. It was down there and he found a pair of skis that this old traveling French man had and couldn't carry with him anymore. And bought this pair of skis and went out into the sand dunes behind their house and figured out how to dune ski. And now runs like the largest dune skiing operation in the world and has people visit him to go skiing in Namibia. So like weird strings that you find, again, I hate the Internet, but it can be a wonderful place. You just find these weird stories and stuff kind of just keeps appearing. And that is where most of my travels led to, and it's gotten me some really cool, really weird, really not recommended situations by most people's standards, but it usually makes for a cool story. So a lot of people can't listening. What's the weirdest thing that's happened to you on a trip? I guess a ski intended trip. Ski intended trip. Like something that you're doing for travel that you're doing for skiing. Oh man. Let's see that. That could go a lot of different ways. I think. Well, I got two. I'll give you two quick ones, but one probably trip to China that ended up producing some pretty cool content. And pretty much just the whole trip was a total weird experience, but at one point we're skiing on this, this crater volcano is Crater Lake that was an old volcano that collapsed in on itself and all that. And through the middle of that crater is the border between China and North Korea. And the critter Lake itself, like the crater has all these sick lines to ski, but we couldn't tell where the border was, and it was a group of like 5 of us. And the guy who was our guy is like, oh yeah, just look for the white rock. It was winter. Everything was white. And The Rock was under ten feet of snow. We couldn't see where the border was. We're like skinning around the outside of this crater, being like, we're not really sure where the border is, but we definitely don't want to step into the wrong side. This was like right around the time where that Virginia frat boy was in prison. Oh, yeah, yeah, yeah. It was not a good time to be an American in either China or North Korea. And we were just skinning and we had no idea what country are in until this dude was like straight up from Star Wars popped out of the snow full like white. No way. With a rifle, Chinese guard and he's like, nope, nope, not that way, pretty much, and we were like, oh, okay, well, I guess we'll ski right then instead of left. As somebody who, I mean, you've traveled a lot, so I think you kind of get the American perspective and the American way of doing things isn't always the way that it's very seldom the way that people do things in other countries. How do you treat that kind of situation where you're like, okay, obviously there's a language barrier, there's communication issues, and just the way your freedoms as an American, like we sometimes take for granted, and then you go to a different country and realize that access is not exactly the same. And these other places. Well, I'll tell you what, actually, that makes a story even better was that I was at the group of Canadians. I was one of two Americans in a 5 Canadians. And the two Americans were spooked and went right. The Canadians were like, yeah, we can't understand you. We can't understand you and they kept going. They just like kept they acted ignorant to the situation and they just ignored the guard with the rifle and kept like skinning off into the distance. And we were like, how does this end? Like me and the other American that I was traveling with were pretty spooked. We knew the whole time we were in China that we really need to tuck that American ego away. Yeah. That was a moment whereas there was a couple of different reactions to how things could have gone down and I think the Americans opted for the safe one. Nothing happened. They went like another like 20 meters and turned around, but it was tense for a second there. The whole China trip was very tense and actually China in general was a very eye opening experience because we were there in 2016 and they had won the Olympics and were just starting to build that infrastructure. We just all saw on TV. From Beijing. They were in the process of uprooting people from their family homes to build. Yeah, it was, it was wild. I made a lot of good friends on that trip that were Chinese and not many of them are still there. Just because of the way things are run over there, it's just difficult. So to see that from the inside was really interesting, maybe one of the most interesting things of the whole trip was learning about the great firewall. The whole censorship program that goes on over there and how effective it is. Yeah, I don't know. Yeah, explain this. Basically, YouTube, Google, Facebook, those don't exist in China. They're just, they're just shut down by Internet sensors. And so that is a bummer, right? And people have figured out a way around it though. They get these VPNs that give you a proxy server and you connect with the Internet and Hong Kong and all of a sudden the Internet is big again. And that's a real thing over there, but what I thought was fascinating was there's entire an entire industry built around bringing things around the wall. So there's like a company like 20 cubicles of people that are on VPNs all day scouring the Internet and finding videos on YouTube. They found all the candide videos. They were huge fans of line traveling circus. So will Wesson and Andy Perry, huge in China. They're not kidding when they say that. They actually are..

"Do you know that's one of the deepest I actually thought Tahoe was deeper and I looked it up and Crater Lake has even been. I think Lake Tahoe is an old caldera too. Oh yeah. I think so. Maybe we could look that up, Doug, if I'm not mistaken. I think you find old, you guys. Despite all the did you guys know, did you guys know that Yellowstone? There's a list of volcanos. Yes. There's a list of most probable ways that humanity could become extinct volcanos. And one of the top 5 is Yellowstone. It's a fucking supervolcano. What are the other four? I think about that every day. That's what we need to focus on. Okay? I think the other four are nuclear war asteroid hitting earth. I don't remember what some of the other ones were a plague of some sort. But yeah, and I was scared everybody. Especially since one happened and the other one everybody's threatening. No, but the supervolcano, that Yellowstone could literally and it will at some point explode. It's active. And what it does, we're dead. Yeah, we're all Twitter life been treating you. Oh, dude. You're quite the tweeter. I go, yeah, I've been plotting on there like crazy this year. Is that what you say? It's such a twit. I go off on there, dude. That's such a bad place. It's way more negative than I thought it was. Oh, it is, for sure. It's so negative. But it's so you though. I mean, I felt like you belonged on there for so long. You weren't really an Instagram guy. You were made for Instagram. No, I hate that. Why are you trying to say I'm not good on pictures? Positive threads, or is it all just like there's a lot of smart people on there, and you can read some really interesting stuff, but yeah, on Twitter, it's like people tend to go off and then go back and forth..

"That's it. Yes. How has a giant hemlock managed to float upright and clear Lake for more than a hundred years? Man, if that is the water is bloody cold is what it is. And the ranger who was leading us around the boat happened to have a PhD in geology. And so he's completely nerding out explaining to us, oh, and this has happened when the dinosaurs were walking the earth. And that's cool. The thing is I love that. She's dropping all of these technical terms and I was like, how lucky we are. And I won't remember any of this, because I don't know. Not enough room in the head. And the brain anymore. No, I don't know. One thing goes in, something goes out, and you just paleozoic mesozoic. Don't eat it. Cretaceous. Oh, I know. Exactly. I think she in period and the Cambrian period and they all just kind of jumbled together and so I'm like, okay, we can look at rocks and figure out how old things are and that's great. That's just going to be a skill set I don't have. But there's mount mazama. Is this also a crater? John's a big fan of craters. That's what, oh, that's the volcano. Yes. That blew up in Oregon and made Crater Lake. And maybe the old man of the Lake was in that volcano. We don't know. What is this east circle? Does the ranger understand the irony of the fact that you're going in a boat in this Lake and he says, and there's the old Lake, a log that's been floating here for a hundred years. Does he understand the irony of that, or is he just do it straight? He doesn't straight. He does it straight. They have the work cut out for them because they have to remind you repeatedly please don't go into the Lake. It's almost freezing. Is it that cold? So no water in or out, how does it not just evaporate? I don't remember. Maybe there's melt. Oh, rain. Do you have rain up there? Okay, there you go. And it snows the photos that come out of Crater Lake national park in the winter are amazing. I've never been there. I can't wait. Now I've got to go see the old man of the Lake. Just get yourself on the boat tour. You'll go buy it. You'll be tempted to try to reach out your arm and touch it and they'll be like, no, no. They get mad if you try to touch it. It'd be really embarrassing if you touched it and sank. And you're holding onto it. No. Ruined it. It was huge. It is phenomenal great to jail. Yeah. What are you in for, man? I committed murder. I sank the old man of the Lake. What caused it to float horizontally? I tilted over. Oh boy, oh boy. Well, we've actually run out of this has never happened before. We've run out of stories before we ran out of show. I stalled for as long as I could, but I just couldn't keep it going. I guess I have to take off my clothes. I don't know. No, I wouldn't do that. I mean, you wouldn't do that again. Once is enough. Oh, I believe you guys were supposed to give me gaming recommendations. Ah, I knew there was something we were coming back to do. So we want to get Lisa into gaming, I personally, I'm a big fan of valheim. It's about building. It's about being a Viking. It's beautiful sunsets. It's occasional attacks for strange things. But most of the time, you just hanging, chilling with the Vikings, my favorite. What do you recommend to get Lisa in the games? A brutal exploration and survival game, I'm told. It's not that brutal. What does procedurally generated mean? It means it's different every time. And so there's different seeds. The best thing, though, and is to get a group of girl scouts together. And in a server and all cooperatively. And you can honestly do more. It's more like Minecraft than it is like Call of Duty. It's a beautiful game. It really like. Yeah, I don't want to shoot them up game ideas. No, I don't want to eat either. That's why I should also recommend wordle. Wait, the one that just got bought by New York Times? Sometimes that could be dramatically, and it is our new nighttime Miley. Yeah, not me. I don't know where that one. It's our new nighttime ritual before we turn out the lights and go to sleep. We do the whirl. It's really fun. I will never do where it all. I tried it too, and it was not for me. I'm dyslexic, so it was now. No. Was not, I did not find that fun. So what do you recommend? For Lisa, what do you want to? What do you want to do? It depends on what you really enjoy. Gaming, it should be towards something that you already enjoy doing. So like for me, it's just stress relief. I want something kind of mindless I can come in, I can come out, I don't have to worry. I get a little bit of dopamine from whatever. I'm with you. Candy crush team or doing a puzzle solver like the room where you're in an area. You can put them away. Yeah. It's just a really fun, beautiful, easy to start and endgame, or all play people against boggle. I like quick and easy games. Like those really long expansive games, like I don't have the time to be able to go through it, at least it seems like you're doing like a million different things. So I don't think that you'd have a lot of time to be able to do a game that you're going to have to spend a lot of effort in doing. So I would say something that's more kind of like a casual, something that's good for your brain and you're doing whatever words with Friends or other things where you can kind of have a little cute little competition going, but it isn't something that's really serious or that's going to take up a lot of time. Good idea. Yeah. Casual gaming iPad iPhone style. Yeah. That's makes a lot of sense. And it keeps your brain active. Owen. What do you think? As usual, Lisa, I don't know if you've noticed this, but I'm the person that comes in with the correct.

He's making himself useful. What is, by the way, I've been, what is the microphone you're using these days though? And that's a different look in Mike. What is that? This is so good. I usually use these, but I just shot a new raisin and ninja today and my daughter started podcast. So I switched it up. This is the little pod road mic thing, the little tiny one. But the big ones are road as well, right? Yeah, they're all right. They're both roads. Yeah, and my other mic is an AKG. I'm like you, I got too much stuff. So every once in a while I like to switch it up, get my voice a little bit more depth. Yeah. Check it out, see if it works better for me. Okay. That's what I do. And look at this today, look at this, you know what this is. He said, Georgia? It's so cute. It's turbo man. Turbo man. Whose turbo man? You don't know about turmoil that you were talking about on a Swiss nigger earlier. I was thinking that movie, but they were trying to get the turbo man doll. What was it called the Christmas movie? Everybody's trying to get a turbo man. Dang it. Well, all the way. That sounds about right. That sounds about right. You're trying to get the toy. That's the toy everybody trying to get. You know, I finally understand what it means to get old. The young people around you will be talking about things you just go, I don't know what you're living a whole different hyperspace. You and Tom American on my nurse anyway, somebody asks you about a diode from 1983. That I know about. I can tell you, I can tell the shifts from the fall spark. Exactly. I know the difference. Just pump your brakes on what you do and don't know. Your brain's kind of full of somewhat useful information. I love that when you said that, by the way, Lisa, because my father was a geologist. And you bet I could tell this shift from themselves. Onsite. I feel like it's the miss awkward part of the brain because I went on a boat tour in Crater Lake. We went to Crater Lake national park here on the boat tour. You see the log that's been floating there for years. And the park ranger who did our book. They give you a tour of a log that's been floating in the Lake. Well, the log is like a feature. You basically go in the middle of the round and be amazing at this volcanic caldera that you're in. Yeah, but we were like the feature is the log floating. Yes. Yes, it's called the old man. And the reason it's a big deal is Crater Lake is so cold. It's just a few degrees above freezing. And because it doesn't have any water source that flows in or flows out. It's a it's like a giant ice cube. Yeah, yes. And so this log has been bobbing around in the Lake for decades upon decades. I forget exactly how long I'm going to have to Google that learning picture. The old man of the Lake, so it's floating, that's not like a pier that's just a floating piece of wood. It's a floating, it floats vertically..

And then there's just this little jewel of a blue Lake surrounded by these high cliffs and it's really quite spectacular. This is George cling. He is a Lake expert at the University of Michigan. But way back in 1985, he was just a grad student, traveling around Cameroon, and studying their local lakes. He remembers meeting a townsperson in the village of lower neos, named mister Lucas, whose two sons led him to the Lake nearby. Lake nios and a finger pointing that way. And children would guide people up to the Lake and show them they'd take pictures and then come down and write their reflections in a guidebook. The Lake before was this beautiful clear blue Lake, very pretty kind of like Crater Lake in Oregon. George went to the shore of Lake nyos took some water samples and signed the guidebook. Then he continued on with his travels. Fast forward one year later and George was back at school. When he heard the news about the mysterious disaster at Lake neos. I found out about the disaster when the U.S. State Department contacted my adviser and he told me that they were putting together a scientific response team to the disaster. They pulled together experts in gas in chemistry in geology. And then there was George, the Lake expert, or limnologist. The State Department knew George had been to lag neos before, and they wanted his knowledge of the site. So less than two weeks after the disaster George arrived back at Lake nyos. And everything was different from the way it had been the year before. The situation when we first got to was very eerie. Because it was tremendously quiet. The people who had lived close to the Lake, in fact, up to 16 miles away from the Lake in the river valleys, people were killed. So there was no activity around. Some people who are living above the Lake in the mountains had survived. But in the lower lying areas, the loss of life was absolutely staggering. And for George, that included the people he'd met on his first trip. The two boys that took us up mister Lucas sons who guided us up to the Lake the first time we went that village was all destroyed as well. That was very sad to see that those people were gone. And it wasn't just human beings who had died. The bodies of cattle and goats were littered around the Lake. And the sounds of even the birds and insects were gone. Even the Lake itself wasn't the same. It was very muddy and brownish with floating mats of vegetation on the surface. And when the.

Like the Washington coast I feel like it's very like flat and kind of sandy and grassy as you lead up to the water, but the organ coast is very rocky and it's just some really cool rock formations. Crater Lake, I went there a few weeks ago, amazing. It's our only national park here in Oregon. I feel like I'm part of the Oregon tourism board here pitching you guys to come down here. And of course, Grants Pass downs where you can come enjoy a wonderful day of horse racing in southern Oregon at least for another three weeks. Well, obviously next spring too. But I met this year. But yeah, very nice weekend and that was great to get out and have some nature and some walking and get away from people. The quietness of a mountain Lake is something that is quite wonderful. One thing I mean, as I've gotten older, I have less and less liked living in big cities and more and more liked kind of getting further away. And I think traffic is a part of that. Like, it's just so nice down here in southern Oregon. I never have to deal with traffic. It's a beautiful thing, but, you know, there's also advantages, obviously, to being in big cities as well. We will recap the weekend here shortly we'll talk some ML Belmont, but watching a lot of the Gulf Stream races lately. I always tend to watch Gulfstream part of it, you know, going to Florida, I want to kind of learn as many connections because some of those horses will come over to Tampa and but the all weather race is there, it seems as though they're not running very fast on that surface. But maybe similar to woodbine and maybe similar to the synthetic era of the mid 2000s to 2012 or whatever it was. I tend to find that I just, I like those races. It seems like you get a little more of a crapshoot feel too much. I know sounds not great because it's hard to have conviction and whatnot. But I just think there are different beast and the other thing is is using optics. It seems like a lot of the horses that plot well there that are prices are running well. And so maybe it's just that I'm liking it from a personal opinion standpoint, but yeah, I've been in a joint. I'm really curious what it'll be like for the turf races on the big meat with just the one course, but always love watching some Gulfstream and been watching a fair bit of them as of late. So I don't know, we'll talk about any Gulfstream today that are really have any kind of marquee races. There was a really super cool moment that happened on Saturday night. We barely talk harness on the show. And well, you know, we'll bring in a harness guest every so often. In fact, pompano start, maybe I'll call Gabe up and see what get him on the show. But Ken Milton who's the announcer up at wood Biden and Mohawk been there for a long, long time doing the harness races. He's transitioned into also owning and training force. I think he's actually owned horses for quite a while, but and maybe he's trained for a while. I don't follow a lot of harness, but I think this is a newer phenomenon for him. And he's got a good horse. Bob, blah, blah. BOB and then space LOB LAW. Bob, la la, but if you say it fast, it's blah, blah, blah. And 37 to one shot. The horse has had some success this year. Like they've had a really, really good run with him, and he came from way at the back of the pack, kicked to the outside. He was, I think 7th with a furlong left to go. They don't use the term for logs and harness, right? It's just 200 yards. 8th of a mile, they use the mild thing. But he comes just rolling down the outside. And Ken didn't call him until literally the last jump, and I was trying to wonder in my head if he hadn't been keeping an eye out for him, right? Like you gotta keep an eye, or maybe he just said Turner for home. He's too far back, screw it, let's just call these ones up front. But calls his own horse to a win in it, I think at $225,000 race that he I think he owns parts of it and then trains it as well. But 37 to one shot, it's a really cool moment. You know, it was woodbine mohawks, 7th race from Saturday night, highly recommend checking that out. I can't even imagine what it would be like to call a horse you own part of let alone. I know Paul Allen's done that up at Canterbury because he's got a part of a couple and I remember one of them winning recently. I've never owned a horse that one period, so I shouldn't even worry about owning one that I get to call, but it's gotta be surreal. And, you know, I feel like everybody, maybe obviously the other connections in the race might not think it's the greatest thing in the world. But like, I feel like everybody's kind of got to be forgiving for to maybe be a little bit of a Homer in a call like that. I know Trevor still gets some crap up. People go oh the zenya call was a horn call. She was the story of that race, like she should have been dwelt.
"crater lake" Discussed on Places I Remember with Lea Lane
"Is it green again and growing very very green. Very growing and Very very pretty is a beautiful backdrop When the when the sky is clear. It's a great place to go. I think it's all. I think it's missed a lot personally. Did you got to crater lake national park in oregon crater lake. We did fairly beautiful so if you can go to crater lake of course. It's great check with the rangers. If you can to find out about their dark skies crater lake is one of the few last dark sky areas at night. They'll do a program where they'll bring up telescopes and you will be able to see the rings of saturn or mars. They will explain it all and you can see stars for days. If you are a photographer it is. I personally recommend you. Add that to your bucket list because the photography that you can get a will be perfect. He i highly recommend trying that time photography with that speaking of skies. Did you go to moon national monument in idaho. We went to craters of the moon. I think that that the one you're talking about. Oh yes okay. Yes the greater. The moon. A very large volcano field. Full of caves. If you're a cave explorer or you've ever wanted to. There are some bright ones to really go into their some large ones for you. Don't have to get into the very tight spacious but there is a large field of exploration there And i believe that there where nasa utilized training for their astronauts as well. Where would you like to go next. My next is going to be alaska. That is on our list of absolute places to see one for our daughter to get her junior ranger badges because every national park as a junior ranger program. So we utilize that but to see it. We've heard it is a beautiful place to visit and it is going to be one of the hardest to get twos. So it's it's very much on that. Okay now i have to do it. Your you're throwing up obstacles. Yeah i can see that one of my favorite itineraries was the mighty five cluster of utah's national parks including zion. Bryce capitol reef arches and canyon lands. I don't know if you did that. But that's a classic and highly recommend that one as well. We missed that. We unfortunately had to come home to kentucky for that. We had a family emergency but that was on our list to do. And it's still on our track for when we had the west coast leaving twenty twenty four terrific. Well thank you brian. The name of the podcast is places i remember. Can you give us one special memory while you're road trips in your rv..
"crater lake" Discussed on So, Here's My Story...
"We got so. Here's my story. I was looking at facebook memories this morning as do many mornings to get my day started and there was a series of photos from vacation that we took in twenty fourteen with the kids where we went from san francisco. All the way up into seattle and vancouver and This this particular day that that i posted about today was at crater lake which is about midway through our trip and there is this picture of kaya my daughter and i she had chosen to use her vacation money that we had given the kids like you know. This has the last you two whole weeks. You a huge bulk of it to buy this fairy authentic looking park ranger outfits like the green shorts dislike khaki shirts. I will put a picture in the facebook group because it is hysterical. The sunglasses a hat It's just it's it's just incredibly authentic. But she was like eight at the time eighty nine. I can't do the math quite quickly enough in my head. She's fourteen now so however old she would have been at that time and So she says can put it on. Now we're like shore so she goes in and puts it on and then comes out in this lake almost just like eight. The way amy poehler takes on a character where she just is. This like crotchety like like cranky. Nps person we're just kind of funny because they're not usually that way. They're actually quite lovely but she's like walking around barking orders at people like there's like get off the you know don't stamp on the grass kind of thing and she's like pointing to it. She was like saying things people and they were doing it. Like people were moving this bear and she would not drop character for like ours our she where this thing and it's of looking at that this morning and i was laughing. And here's the part where it comes around to story for this podcast is. I started off thinking about parenting. Obviously because as my son is going to college a couple of days as we can't seem to do enough so that we mentioning. And so i'm just been thinking a lot lately. I think as as you end kind any transition happens anywhere you you look back on. What did i do. Well what did i would. I wish i'd done differently. What could i have done. Better and looking at the hatch is really sealed. Something about how pleased. I am that i that. A lot of my parenting decisions revolved around just staying out of their way letting them letting them be themselves and do things like never would even thought about. But here's the interesting thing. And this is where i think it really ties back to at least topics of culture. If not some other things that you may come up with As we go. But as i thought back it wasn't there was no point in my early parenting days. I made this list of things that like i want. I want my kids to be funny. I want my kid or you know to have a good sense of humor. I want my kids to you. Know be quirky or I didn't make click some lists like some people do with designing culture or like establishing this. It's like all the things that i'm most proud of happened in these interstitial tiny moments of in every moment where i was like i was didn't wanna do a certain thing or Or sometimes it was confronting. That was an easy when this particular example didn't come with some big decision on my part is hysterical. But i can give some other examples as we talk where there were moments where i was like. Ooh how are we going to handle this. And in each moment the things that became our driving culture of our family and what really shaped them as people were all these momentary decisions. Where i had to decide what matters most to me in this moment like what do i most care about. What are the things i care about. And that's that's what shapes your parenting seller. That's what shapes culture not these sort of advanced big decisions not that it's not important to decide what your values are. There is value to that. But i'm just really really present to how much it happens to start the all these moments where some of the things i most love about my kids. I can think back to moments where i had to make decisions quickly. Like but like the very first time i a parent of a kid that one of my kids love to do sleepovers with said oh does turner when it come over tonight. Spend the night i was like. Oh i'm he does hold on a second turner. Do you wanna go to this friend's house. He's a cow now. I don't want to go and it was like. Oh oh no now. I have to either say and in that moment it'd be standing right there so if i've made up an excuse like oh we have some place to be. I forgot then. I be teaching him that. That's what you have to do. That's what i wanted to do. I'll be honest. But in that moment i thought oh no i care like what do i care about. I want him to see that. You can say i don't want to. I adore you and i. You're still my friend. And i just don't feel like spending the nights house tonight and so anyway. That's my sort of parenting. Reflection turned cultural conversation. And maybe other things. Well i'll tell you so. Two things occurred to me or earth. Two examples occur to me one in business one personal in family so in business in. This was a meeting that that happened fairly recently. There was a we had a client who is embroiled in this pretty bitter litigation with a partner because it's as close as business law gets to divorce and so are all of these emotions etc and a deposition arose and the client for whatever reason really expected Lacy is ailing the case to kind of attack during possession might drop to do all that stuff and so. That's not the best cat that's out the that's the wrong side. Never my So that's not the best tactic for deposition and declined called me To complain about lace so we set up a meeting at which lacy was present. But you know there are two. There are two Priorities in that kind of conversation are two things that are warring to be the priority. It wasn't even a close decision but those two things are. Obviously you wanna make sure that you you have client satisfaction or you see burnishes what's ended important in business it is. It's kind of important business. And so i wanted to make sure that the client felt heard you know. Couldn't cut him off at the knees but the other thing. That is the priority to me. The way i run it is that there's there's not ever going to be a time that anybody who works for me thinks that i don't have their back now. That doesn't mean that we can't talk about. Oh could this have been done. A different way have been done a different way or that you know we've been wrong which could arguably also be having their back. I mean it doesn't have to be like always saying that they're right in. They droid thing.
"crater lake" Discussed on Pantsuit Politics
"About july. I'm probably being way too optimistic. About how much time july contains because i have a stack of books such stack of books that i wanna read. I have a list of house projects. I'm going to declutter some things. I want to spend a lot of time outside in the pool. I have a trip to chicago. Plan for my nieces baptism. I just have a lot of little things. But it's like it's the longest list of little things. So i'm planning after we finished recording today when i feel like our break sort of kicks off to sit down with that list and pair it down to something that feels more realistic and really prioritize and say like how do i wanna feel at the end of july and what what here will help me feel that lane. I'm not a good person to help you with that. As we all know. I usually bring four to five books on every trip whether it be like a weekend trip or you know whatever the case may be i i mean. I took a book to read when we went to holiday world. Because this is this is my mindset. This is the this is the internal dialogue. I have in my head is that i will always have time and make time to read. Sometimes i do but it is usually overall overly optimistic. I usually also take four to five journals. Everywhere i go. I'm just i cannot. I can validate that for you. And she writes in all of them. It's very impressive. It makes me feel a little bit guilty. But i'm very impressed with you. I like to have a journal available to meet my need wherever i am so we also have quite a july planned. We are taking a big family vacation. The boys and i are going to california to visit disneyland with my dad and my nephew and then we nicholas will join us in seattle and we're going to go travel through the pacific northwest. We're going to go to five national parks in two weeks. I'm going to take a big chunk out of mine. National parks scratch off poster. So we are really really excited about that. I don't i am. I am packing july full. But i'm also hopefully with enough agent insight understanding that like i don't expect to finish july like feeling like of meditated and relax to a higher plane. That's not the july have planned. That's okay that's okay. I don't feel so wrung out and depleted physically. As i did at certain points of twenty twenty i do feel a little depleted sort of mentally and intellectually. That's what i'm hoping to pack in still like just seeing people and seeing places and reading books and thinking big thoughts and so. That's what i. I hope to to feel at the end of july. Although i'm sure i will also feel a tablet cranky from that much travel with my three children but so is wide open eyes wide open about that. Yeah when i say how. Do i wanna feel at the end of july. It is also not as though i have spent the entire month in like a spa in sedona. It's more that. I recognize that between navigating cova ed preparing our infrastructure series writing our second book. I have not had this space to engage with all kinds of music and books and writing. That i know will be really enriching for me and i just want to be able to dive into that stuff. I've neglected a lot of things in my house. I want to start the school year. Feeling like our house really has some good structure and things feel good here. And so it's i. I don't have like a deep soul needs that need to be patched up in july. It's it is just like many sabbatical. Just that chance to reset find some new creative energy. i get back to it. I love our work so much. And i know that i'm really bad at taking time off because every conversation we've had as a group i'm like well i could do that in july. No big deal. Because i i love what we're doing. I'm so happy. With how it's going right now. And i think just a little disruption in all of the content that we make every single week is just going to open up a lot of possibilities for all of us and a lot of new ideas. My kids don't go back to school till forever is literally a full three months of summer. Break it's fine so they don't go back to august eighteenth so we'll have two weeks still to get ready for the school but i am doing some fun things while i'm out on vacation. The one i'm particularly excited about is my friend. Sarah who is an artist and just has a really incredible style and who often comes and helps me in my house. I had taken every piece of art in my house off the walls. It's in my office. Don't worry for those of you who see the the gallery while in office. That's not going anywhere because that took way too much work. That's there till i leave this house. And i'm having several rooms repainted because children are disgusting and my children have been in this house all the time for like a year and a half and so everything is like doubly disgusting. I don't know how walls get greasy but mine are some having several things repainted. And then sears gonna come on vacation and hang everything in all new places. I'm so excited. So i'm going to have like a new house without buying a thing. It's going to be all the stuff already owned in love. Only an all new locations. Because you know you stop seeing stuff after a while like it hangs in a spot for long enough. You just don't see it anymore. I'm very excited to come home to this fresh visual space. Because again i work from home. And everybody's been doing all the things in our house for so long so i'm really excited about that. That's really fun. What other special things are coming up for you surrounding your fortieth birthday during this month because we're not gonna be making a podcast that week to talk about it so let's let's lay on the birthday.

And so we will be in oregon. I'm very excited about that. I think we're going to be according to my itinerary in crater lake which is supposed to be just transcendently beautiful.

"Yeah drawing really. Thank you so look all right my next cool sheet. I'm gonna talk about time and date again. I loved it so much now. I'm just kidding. Okay i'm gonna talk about. I haven't done this for ever but that's because We kind of just went away from talking about local businesses. But i'm going to business because they have an online presence and anyone anywhere can look at their beautiful photos they can learn about. They make their products and you can order online. It is called a wild four oregon. Okay so their whole mission is to give you things that where you can enjoy nature more and you can get away from electron ix and all of that stuff more so they are creating things like soap and lotion and lip balm and things like that and so this is all inspired from nature and ninety percent of their supplies and the raw ingredients are from local farms and businesses in oregon.

So they are getting life for example mint from mt hood region and Fresh beeswax from the bees around here that go to the coast to get kelp and all that kind of stuff so it is really one of the things i love. The most is how they name each one of their products and like the one that has to mount hood. So like. I said they have the mint from there and One of my favorites is Crater lake. I think i need to pull them up to remember them all but they smell so good. They're so beautiful. If you go to their website they show you exactly how they're making all these things they show the clay and they show the beeswax the oils and it's just beautiful there.

"crater lake" Discussed on True Mysteries of the Pacific Northwest
"Welcome to true. Mysteries of the pacific northwest stories of strange and unexplained people places and events often obscured by the miss of time. I'm your host. Ken chrome today a mystery. Aircraft over oregon. No this isn't one more ufo sightings and the incident didn't take place several decades ago as a matter of fact in the research. I could come up with the october. Twenty fifth data. The siding. But the year was inconclusive. This was from the freedom of information act. I got this story. It was late october. Something flew over. Portions of oregon. Whatever it was to fight all attempts at identification. The date was october twenty fifth when air traffic controllers started questioning commercial airline pilots flying between portland and seattle asking if they could identify a mystery. Object the craft and question didn't have it's traffic collision avoidance system transponder on and it was not responding to air traffic controllers attempts at communication. Perhaps most disturbing was. It could not be picked up on radar. Pilots responded that they had seen the object but had not come close enough to identify the aircraft at this point several oregon air national guard f fifteen fighters out of portland. International were sent to check out the mystery craft but reported no sightings when the craft was reported near crater lake controllers begin to get responses from pilots. The craft was variously described as flying north at between thirty five and forty thousand feet. One pilot reported that the bird was twelve to fifteen miles away. Others reported twenty miles. Several pilots estimated the airspeed at around four hundred twenty five miles an hour. Finally the pilot of united flight six twelve when queried by air traffic controllers if he saw the mystery aircraft responded. Yeah we got him. He's about four miles away in a later report. He described the object in question as white speck about four or five thousand feet above us following us for some time. Certainly truly this was an unidentified. Flying object speculation runs from being a government test flight to the navy's m q twenty-five stingray drone if indeed it was a military test craft and it was designed like the modern stealth fighter to fly undetected by radar and perhaps unlike the stealth fighter that could be spotted and identified from the ground. This new craft sported a design that made that impossible. Indeed like the title of this program boasts. The craft that flew over oregon on october. Twenty fifth was a strange and claimed event.

"crater lake" Discussed on The Amateur Traveler Podcast
"Welcome to the traveler. I'm your host chris christensen. Let's talk about tanzania. i'd like to welcome the show. Jen current from globe and tribe dot com. Who's come to talk to us about western tanzania. Jen welcome to the show chris. Happy to be here so first off. What is your relationship to liam. Probably my first contact with pannonia was when i was at university of wisconsin. For my bachelor's degree actually studied african languages. Swahili was my first language. That i studied there so i'd always wanted to spend time in east africa. And so. I got to know tanzania even before i went through the language after getting my graduate degree in public health in new orleans. I had a chance to travel there and through my career in public health before travel agency. I spent about sixteen seventeen years working in various development projects all throughout africa but a lot in tanzania and kenya as well as southern africa. So i've had a luxury. At least africa for many many analysts going on two decades now excellent and therefore we should also say two things. One is the globe dot com. That i mentioned is a site where you can book tours and two. I should wish you caribou or welcome. Thank you so much. Nina semakieh swahili kadogo. I said i speak a little swahili or something. I i speak a little. You actually said it in like it's usually nina sama He's healy but you said no out. Which is like the short version which is almost a little bit like with the cool kids. Say so you're ahead of the game. Excellent gardener and why. Should someone go to tanzania but particularly western tanzania. Tanzania is just a. I mean there's so many amazing things about hanania. The people are great culture. It's great not just the swahili coast culture watching up quantity. They call themselves in the people of the water. People have the beach. But just in general i think are really kind warn people i know everyone says that every place that got all the people were so great but gonna do a lotta places where the country is amazing and people were fine but they weren't super hospitable so i feel like that's what everyone says but i just yeah really warm. Welcome mean tanzania just has a breath of natural wonders. It also has a lot of history particularly on the coast. Zanzibar is has a lot of culture museum of our past hands around for a while. It has great omani culture. So there's just a lot in tanzania in a western tanzania. I often say like a lot of places that i go kind of places. I specialize in mainly because for work. I was going to paris for work. That was going to chad and it was going to pretty remote areas western tanzania. I would say one reason to go. There is because not everyone's going there so for me. That's kind of my dick. that's something. that's his appeal to me. And it's just a place where a thoughtful of but it just has amazing natural wonders that i think get lost in the big sarah. Getting beauregard. tarring era area. The nature of the wildlife is incredible. They're it's not full of other tourists and really and some of the places that i've been particularly qatabi national park which i can talk more about is just it feels wild like it feels like what it was like a century ago granted. You're staying in fancy tench which might not have been there years ago. Whatever but you do feel when you're out there it's vast wilderness and you're kind of to loan which is pretty incredible and it's just feel so wild to me. It was one of the places that i've been there. So few places. I think in the world where you can really feel like. Wow this is wild. And that. I think that's one of the reasons. I love it so much. Excellent and you mentioned going to other countries like chad and things like that. And i don't remember whether you've said already but you were in epidemiology so if jen was going place you probably didn't want to. Yes yes a places where we were like. Why would you go there like well. I had to go there. And i found i was determined in almost everything place. I want you to find what was incredible about it and i'm not necessarily known for being an optimist but that is something that i strive to do. Wherever i go is i will find incredible thing here so i would think. Epidemiology and optimism might be a poor combination thin. You end up saying things like it'll go away magically which not to get into politics but may not end well so yeah that's a whole that's another podcast holds. Everybody does that. We're not doing on this show. What kind of itinerary are you going to recommend i. I know that usually like the one or two week thing is ideal but i think i heard you mentioned another papa. Sometimes when you go floor away a week just gonna cut it. But i do think that especially for western sandia if you are going to add it onto a large right january you can do it in a week ten days. That just doesn't really count the days getting there. But what i did and i thought it was an incredible itinerary was spent. You could spend three to four days in taba national park which is southern western pennsylvania and then another three or four days depending on how you split your week in holly national park. There's a couple of charter flight companies Flights that go and they operate mondays and thursdays. Just because it's pretty remote. And it's not chock full of people you can go monday to tubby and then thursday. Go the hallway. And then fly back on monday to arusha which is where you would fly in and out of. You can't drive from doors. Probably about twenty hours if you're lucky and you're on good roads. The haven't seen a lot of rain or about fifteen from one but it's been a hike and clearly couldn't do that week and just to put a couple of those places on the map when you say dr you're saying dar-es-salaam and that's the way the cool kids sit and then Ones is up on lake. Victoria and so. That's sort of central northern tanzania and arusha is the central entry point four a lot of the safaris into those game parks. That you mentioned into both kilimanjaro talked about a recent episode as well as tearing giri a girl gore crater lake. Manara the sir getty right correct. You can fly in or out of jaro. Which is kilimanjaro. And it's about an hour drive to arusha with the domestic airport that yes you would fly out of to go to any number of parks and then yeah to get way over to where you're talking about. A flight is going to be a lot quicker than dry. Because you're all the way across the country and africa's a big place. Yes and the very long in probably strenuous drive. You're doing that but the flights are also it's not just a direct flight even qatabi you have. You have to at least even if you're going directly there without pigging dropping off any other passenger at any other spots you at least need to refuel once in a place called to laura so you stop too old airport action of a vip lounge couple chairs in it but it is a three hour flight with in there with a refueling. You're looking at maybe three and a half hour with different stops and stuff from a cool so you started us in qatabi. What are we going to see and copy retirement. National park is actually one of my favorite hidden. Gems is actually the third largest park in terms of sheer size in tanzania but it is the least visited. I've read statistics Around thousand visitors a year. But i've actually looked at tanaka. Which is the tanzanian parks. And i want to say. Most years is probably in the low. Hundreds be fair. When i was there which is in september so midseason for three of my four days. I was the only tourist in the park so had the entire park on myself. The other time there for the other day there was one other. She's actually another american girl who had driven there from russia and there were just two of us in the park. So is pretty incredible. We had the whole place to ourselves. And.

When a myth becomes a mystery
"Owls Welcome to kids Miss Mysteries! I'm your host kid crumb today. When a myth becomes mystery for today's Podcast, I decided to begin with the definition of terms I started with myth I went to my webster dictionary and came away with the following a traditional story, especially one concerning the early history of people, explaining some natural or social phenomenon, and typically involving supernatural beings events, next I locked up mystery something that is difficult or impossible to understand or explain I needed a local place or event that fit both definitions and had more from myth to mystery, and decided on Mount, Shasta California Shasta a dorm volcano located at the southern end of the cascade range in Siskiyou. County. California is has erupted approximately. Approximately every eight hundred years for the past ten thousand years and vulcanologists will tell you it is overdue. It has seven glaciers, three small glaciers on the southern flank for the larger ones are located on the north and east flanks for those who live next to the volcano, especially on the north side in the Lake Shasta area remnant from the last eruption are easily visible, ranging from lava tubes amounts left by cry, pyroclastic flows Labra Shasta is an incredible site and occupies the lands of four native American tribes. The earliest myth was that the great spirit Scowl came down from the heavens and fought with the spirit of mountain. Ussamma known today as Crater Lake. Indeed this is how the ancient. Ancient people of the area explained volcanic activity for years. It was believed that Shasta contain sacred healing waters during the eighteen eighties, teenage psychic rhetoric Spencer Oliver who lived in the nearby town of White. Rica wrote a book a dweller on two planets. It was published by his mother in nineteen five six years after his death. It was among the pages of that book. That young Oliver, mentioned the many tunnels and chambers in and Beneath Shasta some will tell you that the publication of dweller onto planets was went. Myth turned to mystery for Mount, Shasta, remember now that myth is a traditional story, especially one concerning the early history of people or explaining some natural, a social phenomenon, typically involving supernatural. Supernatural beings or events and mystery is something that is difficult or impossible to understand or explain tunnels and chambers below Shasta is certainly hard to explain it and qualify as a mystery but Oliver, and perhaps hundreds of other authors claim that these chambers are occupied by the survivors of Atlantis still others describe Americans remnants of a lost civilization as the occupants who occasionally wander into the town of Shasta city to trade gold for supplies. Any locals of the area described little men from Shasta that only come out at night, wandering the surrounding woods collected herbal edibles Shasta has been variously described as a doorway to another dimension.

"The any AC national monument and preserve gets the fewest visitors of any national park, and it boasts no rangers. No trails and no waiting in line. All the more reason Christopher Solomon went out of his way to hike a few summers ago. Chris, welcome great to be here. Is this actually a national park or what's the technicality they're. Technically Rick any act check national. Monument and preserve is its name and it. It is not a national park, but it is the least visited unit of the four hundred and one properties in the national park system, so nobody goes there white. Why do they even bother thinking of it? As part of the system you, you'd think that the least visited might be something like the Martin Van Buren national birthplace right, but no It's Antioch Chat in two. Thousand Twelve Anne check had nineteen visitors last year might have picked up to a hundred or so and you were there with how? How many people in your party three of us three of us now? Where is it and how do you get? There visualizes for me if you look at the map of Alaska Alaska? has this big tale that kind of frozen, fourteen hundred mile tail, that wags westward at come shotgun, and that's the Aleutian islands and the base of that tail is the Alaska Peninsula, and that's where any act check. You know if I wanted to go there next week. Where would I fly? What I just rent a car and drive there, or how'd I get that so one of the reasons rick? Not, very popular is it's hard to get to from Seattle where I live. It took US three flights to anchorage to King Salmon to Port Heiden which is just an airstrip built for World War Two in the middle of nowhere on the Bering Sea and then we backed packed with sixty five pound packs for twenty two miles to reach the centerpiece of the the. The National Monument, which is a gorgeous volcanic crater, so ease of access is not one of its selling points. Is it worth the trouble? Yeah, I was thinking about this on the drive over here and how to summarize it. I have had the good fortune to travel all over the world as a travel writer, I was with a photographer who shoots pictures all over. Over the world and beautiful places we agreed we'd never seen a place as unique as okay. How can you write in? Your article is just gorgeous about this that it was mind-bending. Lee Gorgeous is the desolation that's part of it, or what makes it better than just going to any national park, so maybe to convey what it's like I need to tell you just. Just a little bit about its geologic in human history, which is more interesting than it sounds about the time. The Egyptians were ruling the world. A seven thousand foot volcano blew its top with a with a force of ten thousand nuclear bombs ruined the bigger eruptions we we know of, and then the volcano collapsed on itself and created a crater that could swallow Manhattan. That crater filled with water, so it looked like crater lake national park, then that lake blew out in his biblical flood in over the next couple thousand years, this lost worlds was sort of created inside that crater, and it just went kind of unnoticed, except for the native peoples for thousands of years until nineteen thirty, when this man called the glacier priests arrived, and the Glacier priest was father, Bernard, how he's one of these Jesuit priests who was cut from the old cloth, swashbuckling sort of Jesuits, and he, he barnstorm all over the forty-ninth state, having these wild adventures by Bush plane. Plane by dog sled is write ups win the Saturday Evening Post and the National Geographic and in nineteen thirty, he wrote about visiting Antioch Check, and he described it as paradise found this this lost world where orchids bloomed in the volcanically warmed soil, and the rabbits were gigantic, and they came up and walked right up to his crew, which was a bunch of the Santa Clara football players, and and they felt bad killing them to eat them, but they did anyway. Did you read his writing the in preparation for your trip so I? Did I read about his writings about the great? Great Moon Crater of the earth called it, and then what happened is he wanted to go back the next year nineteen, thirty one and any act check blew up again, and he goes back and talks about it no longer in these Milton, s Kinda paradise found terms, but but in this dante-esque hellish terms describes himself peering into this blackened inferno, and then they go into the crater a couple months after it's blown up again, and they nearly die of poisonous gasses, and they're, and they're put their beans on a funeral and their beans Boileau, and they shove a thermometer in the ground. Ground thermometer explodes, and it's just this hellish wild landscape. That's the setting we go back eight years later. Just kinda see what it's like, and a lot of the soot has washed off from that nineteen thirty one explosion, but it has this kind of Sier Flinty beauty desolation sublime.
