  • Science break

    I just came across a pile of stuff I did back in the sixties and seventies that I'll post here from time to time. This is a little cartoon I drew back in the early seventies.

  • Autumn, alas, is almost over

    These are tamaracks, deciduous trees, that disguise themselves as evergreens during the summer. Alas, autumn is pretty much over up here on top of the world, just about all of the deciduous trees in my yard have lost their leaves. However I still have…

  • 3 birch

    The climax forest up here is spruce. These 3 guys are struggling but doing a pretty good job of holding their own against the encroaching conifers.
