If you haven’t ordered 2014 calendars yet, please do so soon through my Kickstarter project. Less than 2 weeks left! My calendars feature 11×16.5 inch prints, Sun/Moon rise/set times, tide charts, and seasonal advice. I am printing two editions: California and Washington. Note: this year the calendars will have a Sunday week-start.

A few weeks ago I spent two days in the North Cascades, and was treated to the complete quintessential Cascade experience: miles of rarely travelled paths winding up through wet and green jungles; sub-alpine meadows laden with berries; talus slopes shrouded in swirling mists; alpine lakes with views of glaciated peaks and volcanoes; and natural hot springs to ease the muscles aches.
This time, I’ll let the images do the rest of the talking. I apologize for not having the time to tell a more in-depth story; I have a dissertation to write, which will describe in painstaking detail everything I have learned over the past 5 years about how a fruit fly, Drosophila melanogaster, uses visual and olfactory information to locate food (like fermenting fruit in your kitchen).
