The fountains are running again at Stanford!
Checking out the new McMurtry Building for the Dept of Art and Art History!
Giant Cedars Boardwalk…!
Skunk Cabbage Boardwalk…!
Covered cooking/picnic areas…
Stuck in construction traffic…
Entering the town of Revelstoke…
Revelstoke Railway Museum…
The Last Spike of the Canadian Pacific Railway was driven not far from Revelstoke in Craigellachie, British Columbia in 1885, completing the tracks of Canada’s first transcontinental railroad.
Rented bikes and went on an off-road adventure…
Drove Meadows to the Sky Parkway (16 miles) up to the top off Mount Revelstoke. We’ve heard that the view is beautiful, but unfortunately, the smoke from the nearby fires blocked the views today. Would also have been nice if someone had told us that Balsam Lake at the top would be dry by August!
Exploring the Nels Nelson Hill (ski jump) area…
Have to rave about this place in Revelstoke that we went to for lunch AND dinner. Indian-German fusion!! Must try if you’re in the area.
Butter Chicken Spaetzle…
View from near the Rainbow Mansion…
Biked through our old neighborhood, and was reminded of these trees that always drove my nose crazy!
Hello, spring (or early summer) :)
Second annual double duathlon at Lake Folsom!
The volunteers have arrived a little early this year, but so excited to see them!
Love seeing these trees around campus!
Had to stop on my bike ride home to admire the clouds from Kite Hill…
I love this campus so much…
(Stanford’s fountains have been inactive since earlier this year as a reminder to consider the drought)
Student installations in the Engineering Quad!
Rodin Sculpture Garden in the foreground,
construction of the McMurtry Building
(Art Department) in the background…
Man, trees are cool…
They finally took the fences down!
So great to see students incorporating it into their social space. :)
Breaking in the bike rack Derek handed down to us!
Thankfully my lock decided to break when it wasn’t on my bike!
It’s had a good 10-year run. :)
Renovation work on the old abandoned Chemistry building has begun!
Post V-day workout at (the very dry) Lake Folsom. Henning and I competed in a double duathlon (run-bike-run-bike-run) with Greg!
Thanks to Dan, Baxter & Milo for coming out to watch us! :)
We beat Greg! (…just barely!)
California poppies along Serra St,
plus a singleton surprise in the community garden behind Abrams!
California’s state flower!
Taking a break between meetings at Lake Lag, being reminded of California’s current drought situation…
At least the orange trees love this weather…
(newly discovered citrus trees behind Roble!)
Closer up shot of Mark di Suvero’s Sieve of Eratosthenes… with Crothers in the background.
Becca and I ran to Shoreline Lake, where Henning and Greg biked to meet us.
Very exciting post-workout meal, with a view!
That bright globe is the 6:30am moon!
(blur photos taken from my camera phone)
Who knew that this green space was known as Canfield Court?
(Helen Stanford Canfield…)
View of Meyer Library…
Vanguard, by Bruce Beasley…
Stanford Legacy, by Don Yeomans
For more art around campus, see the Stanford Arts Map!
Lots of photos… be warned!
PART 1: Going for a bike ride!
Really cool trees!
Took the wrong trail… ran into a creek…..
Our navigators… and strong men…
Found the bridge…
Found the road!!
Made it home!!
Part 2 tomorrow!
My new office location requires me to pass this hill a couple times a day. Might as well check it out…
First day of my new job, and I’m exploring campus with new eyes!!
Old historic columns…
Kissick Grove (Schwab – Graduate School of Business)
The blue courtyard…
The claw fountain (White Plaza)…
Gay Liberation sculpture by George Segal…
10am clouds by Kite Hill… unreal.
Nice to be back home and get back into routine. :)
In honor of National Left-handers Day…
…and a short run/bike home. :)
Lessons learned: remember to put sunscreen on your legs.
Went on a nice walk around the Crystal Springs Reservoir with some of the structural engineering students, while Henning’s group biked up from Stanford to meet us for a picnic lunch.
Upon recommendation of Fitocracy (a quest!), I went for a 10K bike ride.
I feel like I’m the only person who hasn’t been across the
San Mateo Dr bike bridge…so today was the day!
Along the way, passed the Esther B. Clark School – fun finds outside. :)
Henning’s bike was stolen on-campus in November. :(
With the help of very generous and thoughtful friends and family, he’s gathered up enough to buy another bike! He’s very excited about this Craigslist find. Thank you to everyone who contributed! :)
We woke up this morning off the coast of Dubrovnik, Croatia. Yes, it is as beautiful as we’ve heard it would be…!
Henning and I went on a morning bike ride in the Konavle region (~south east tip of Croatia)… it was a true treat.
Our biking guide Anna…
…fresh water and some old mills…
…our bike group…
…looking toward the Montenegro border…
…wandering the streets of Old Town Dubrovnik…
…lunch with the Louies overlooking the water…
My parents and Auntie Yuen were able to visit the nearby island of Lokrum, which is a nature reserve.
For those interested in bridges…
…back in Old Town…
Henning showing off his cool new goretex bicycling apparel.
Really excited for him to be able to bike to work!
This building has been around since 1959. I think we kind of take for granted how cool it is. Architect: Edward Durell Stone
After a hard evening’s work at the gym, Henning and I biked over to Howie’s Artisan Pizza. The food was great!
…half pesto and half fennel sausage. Pesto was our favorite.
Biking past the Claw fountain to White Plaza…
Roses are red
Violets are blue
It would be EPIC
to go to (6)80’s Prom
Very cute. And funny that they included his photo!
PS This is post 555.
Took this on my 6am run this morning actually… but I love the mini stop signs!
And the helmet on the painted biker! Helmets save lives.
After some time at the gym, Henning and I rode pass the new Law School building on our way home. Loved the garden patio.
Stanford has installed shorty stop signs for bicyclists at intersections around campus!! YESS!!
Biking to work – flailing referee inflatable tube man in at the top of the Li Ka Shing Center stairs?
…pretty much the theme of the Stanford campus. And it’s great to see signs that explicitly draw it out!
I figured out that Henning’s apartment is a 4 minute bike ride from work!!
Here’s Henning’s bike next to mine. Wonder who’s is whose… :)
