The pond

Last year, Erin and I found a pond behind our old apartment complex.  It involved hopping a fence and hiking down the train tracks for a few minutes, but it’s a pretty cool spot.  We’ve finally had some cold weather, so we decided to go check the ice.  Here are some pics.

Trip to Saugatuck

Erin had the day off yesterday, and I got my errands done early, so we decided to go for a drive. We ended up in Saugatuck, where we climbed the majestic Mount Baldhead and ate lunch.

Mt. Baldhead was actually a set of stairs up a dune, with a trail that led to the beach. It was pretty cool. There weren’t many people around, and even though it was windy, it was really warm. It feels pretty nice to hike in January without a jacket.

I brought my new digital camera, and have reconfigured my blog to use wordpress and NextGEN Gallery (a topic for another day). Here are the results. (warning: the full size images are huge)

Edit — I’ve re-sized the images. They’re not nearly as big.

At this point, these images have been compressed a bit by me, and by the gallery plugin. There is a lot of noise that isn’t in the originals. I’m really impressed by the pictures that this camera takes.
