So many incredible images in this Reuters gallery of best of Rio.  Something about this one particularly appealed to me.

Pretty stunning gallery of images from the flooding in Louisiana.  It’s also kind of amazing how little the media seem to care if there’s not a named Hurricane or some truly dramatic event behind it.

I got such a huge kick out of watching Andre De Grasse pushing Usain Bolt during the last 20 meters of the 200m semifinals.  The smiles they were exchanging while running near super-human speeds were priceless.

Another from the Wired Olympics gallery.  Talk about a scenic venue:

Nice Wired gallery of Olympics photos.  Simone Biles, of course.

One more from Hanging Rock state park.  Very cool to be able to go behind this waterfall.

So, a little behind on blogging because I took yesterday off to go hiking at Hanging Rock State Park in NC.  Wow!!  I didn’t even know this place existed till I saw this article in the paper last year.  I had no idea such a cool place existed just a couple hours from my house.  Anyway, here’s David and I atop the hanging rock.  If you live in NC… go!
