(Formerly nomadic) technologist. San Francisco, CA.
Was very fortunate this weekend to spend time with my closest friends and take part in the union of two of the people I cherish most dearly in @_benpope and @katkatatak. We've spent many trips together off in beautiful and remote places but this was the first time we brought out grown up clothes.
The first time I visited Yosemite was with Pope. It was a late arrival and looking up at the stars it was immediately apparent I'd been introduced to one of the most beautiful places on our Earth. I've never forgotten that feeling of awe looking up at that night sky years ago, and it's only fitting to have held such a wonderful ceremony in such a wondersome place.
I'm happy I was able to walk here under my power and with any luck I'll stop injuring myself on our adventures. Thanks for inviting me to experience yet another reminder of the charmed life I live.
To hugs, adventure, laughing circles and enduring love and happiness I wish you both all the best my spirit has to offer.

An impromptu hiking adventure with @katkatatak and @_benpope
Driving away from Mono Lake, Pope noticed a small sign on the side of the road. The adventurer that he is, he had to pull over, turn around, and take the gravel path way it pointed down. A bumpy ride later we arrived at a hike around the rim of a volcanic crater. For a bit under an hour we walked up and around in winds so strong you could lean back into them and not fall over. It got pretty cold and parts of the walk were quite steep, but the view of the lake we had just been standing at the edge of got even more impressive from distance.
The dome of St. Peter's Basilica. It was finished in 1626. Technically it's not a Cathedral because it's not the seat of a Bishop.
I don't know how we would build something like this now, and an even more impressed it could be built so long ago. I saw this at the end of my tour of the Vatican, which also included a quick peek at the collection of Popemobiles.
