50 of Our Favorite Photos of 2016

It was a bit of an odd year for us in 2016. While we did some trips around the Midwest in the first half of the year (and Kris went to Baja California by herself) we didn’t do much until June. Two reasons for that: we bought a small condo in Saint Paul, Minnesota, to […]

Standing in Place: Back Home from Travel

For more than six years, we’ve been ‘location independent,’ traveling constantly all over the world, without a home or even a home base.

I think this photo of a fence at Taos Pueblo looks better in black and white. What do you think? Here’s the color version to help you decide. Taos Pueblo, btw, is a centuries-old Indian community. In many spots, it’s amazingly preserved for buildings made, essentially, of mud. The same people live here who lived […]
