Bend in autumn

Bend in autumn

Another photo from our trip up to Bend a couple weeks ago. Rain began a bit after this photo was taken. This is a very calm part of the Deschutes River.

Autumn comes to Sheep Rock and the John Day River

Sheep Rock and the John Day River

A week ago this was my view while on the River Trail in the Sheep Rock Unit of the John Day Fossil Beds National Monument in Central Oregon.

If you are in Japan in October or early November you may want to consider heading to Hakuba for a canoe/biking tour. The place is empty this time of year as nearly all of the summer hikers are gone and the winter skiers have yet to arrive. However, the colors are fantastic and not to be missed.

Autumn approaches

The last couple evenings I have detected the slightest hint of fall in the air. Things will be cooling down in Southern Oregon very soon. For Japan it takes a bit longer.

Fall colors near Tokyo

Mt. Mitake in Autumn

The fall colors (紅葉) aren’t ripe on Mt. Mitake, near Tokyo, yet, but if you are in or near Tokyo, be sure to head up the mountain in about a month (November 15-30 time frame) for some of nature’s beauty.

Waseda University

Waseda University (早稲田大学) – Tokyo, Japan

Last week Waseda University held its graduation ceremony. I have enjoyed seeing photos from the event on Facebook from some of my former students. I remember the 2010 ceremony very well as I was sitting on the stage but didn’t have to speak, unlike the 2009 opening ceremony which I spoke at and is now just a blur in my head.
