I like the utility pole on the side there. Kind of like a beauty mark for nature.

Did you switch states or just move really far west in your previous state?

Stanley is now a gas.

3: Same place. This is a view from the Southwest Mountains looking west towards the Blue Ridge Mountains.

I drove through the Blue Ridge Mountains this summer, so I guess I show the other side.

I went by Stanley-ville on my move across the country. That area really is beautiful. I'd been through on the train once before, but the route stayed down along rivers so you never really got much of a vista.

I can see Mount Washington from where I sit. The sun sets behind it.

Then there's time yet to find a toreador and take things out on him I guess.

dude, it was 89 yesterday in fucking narnia! and ain't nothing to pick but um...rambutan, I guess. green mango? 89 for part of the day; at one point it got up to 93 if memory serves, and by "if memory serves" I mean "I can just say that because every day is the same: high of 93, low of 85, 50% chance of thunderstorms scattered over narnia"--save that the joke set of seasons 'hot, hotter, wet, wetter' is reasonably accurate if you are willing to get by on a very small amount of variation." it's hotter in august than in december. like, 3 degrees fahrenheit maybe. also, it rains every day in half of december, and all of january and february. it is not unlikely to rain every day in the other months, too, but less often and for a shorter time, so less of the "turbid water the color of kopi c (delicious wicked strong coffee with sugar and condensed milk in it) is rising, inch by inch, visibly, to the edge of the massive, metres-deep concrete canals built for this purpose, which are usually only merely damp at the bottom with a trickle of water in which a kingfisher will, nonetheless, find something to eat." so, yeah, global climate change, eh? will a pumpkin spice latteTM from starbucks ease the pain and help y'all stipulate that it's fall in america? maybe just, I don't know, buy some school supplies and smell the erasers and pencil shavings with your eyes closed?

as ajay has noted, it is always christmas and never winter in narnia, since they begin relentless christmas merchandising in...any minute now...let's say end october. then they don't let up till some kings show up with gold bars and expensive embalming spices, and one of the kings even has to be a negro! they are motherfucking strict! I love xmas. I have themed trees. I pay fucking 300USD for a tree from oregon every year. I pay even more for pine rope to wrap all down my banister! I wrap stocking presents for everyone from santa, that's in different wrapping than any of the other non-santa gifts. I make mixes for my store with unconventional choices like joni mitchell's 'river.' these cocksucking bastards make me sick of christmas, and that is some serious nauseating.

It was 83 and sunny here yesterday. Fortunately that shit stopped and today is reasonable. 55 with drizzle and completely cloud cover.

Western Virginia near the Blue Ridge, and northeast West Virginia too, are stunning, really gorgeous.
