seeking knowledge and laughter, putting a bullseye on inaccuracy

Travel

Thoughts and reflections on trips I have taken, from across the planet to across the state.

Visiting Crater Lake

After visiting California's Coastal Redwoods, we traveled up to Oregon's Crater Lake and loved it. What a great, amazing place to visit. Stunningly beautiful and a great time in the campground. I put a few shots on Flickr mingled with the Coastal Redwoods but the full gallery is here. James, Autumn, and I hiked down to the lake -- where James and I jumped in. It was cold.

Visiting the Coastal Redwoods

Back when Michelle was all preggers in 2015, we took a light hiking and camping trip to the coastal redwoods in California and Oregon's stunning Crater Lake. What a trip! These are the highlights from California. Some on Flickr and the full gallery here.

Babypalooza Photos

We held the first Mitchell-Geiser-Ruch Babypalooza in June at the infamous Club Ruch in Pennsylvania and it was wonderful. Full photo gallery is available here.

Visiting Amsterdam and Bruges

After being asked to speak in Brussels, Michelle and I figured it would be a good time to spend some time in Europe on both sides of the speaking engagement. For the most part, I decided to relax rather than focus on making photos but what I did do are available here.

We spent a few nights in Amsterdam, Brussels, and then the stunning Bruges (where the night canal photo below was made).

Bruges, Belgium

I also made a few videos to show some views from the trains we took. Starting with leaving Amsterdam.

While in Bruges, we went up the famous Belfry of Bruges and timed it to hear the bells ringing.

And finally, a bit of the view from a train leaving Brussels, I think.

Pacific Northwest Roadtrip - 2014 Vacation

In an epic 5,000ish mile roadtrip from Minnesota to Oregon and up through Jasper in the Canadian Rockies, Michelle and I got to see great friends, incredible natural beauty, and listen to hours upon hours of podcasts. Heaven. All the photos are here and select photos are on Flickr.

Stockholm Late in Winter for Work

I had a great opportunity to travel to Stockholm to speak about municipal networks (video here and here) as well as a chance to hang out with a friend - we visited Fotografiska, a great photography museum. A few photos here.

Visiting the Klinks at Pedernales State Park

Every year, I have an event in Austin dealing with broadband policy and I try to take some extra time while there to catch up with Eric and Chanda, often at a state park or two and over some great bbq. Full gallery of photos here - most of the shots are from Pedernales State Park.

Glacier National Park and Flathead Lake Lodge Photos

In one of the best events I have been asked to participate in, I joined a group of people for a weekend at Flathead Lake Lodge in Montana to discuss campaign-finance reform research and efforts. While there, many of us took a short hike on a trail at Glacier National Park. At the dude ranch, they had an adorable foal. Full photo gallery here and some highlights on Flickr.
