Ice Planet


Muskego Lake, Muskego, WI in Winter

Muskego Lake, Muskego, WI | February 22, 2018

The world looks so different from up in the air. This was taken during my arrival into Milwaukee, WI. This is a Muskego Lake in Muskego, WI. I love the textures on the ice—it looks as though it is of another world.


40,000 Foot Monument

40,000 Foot Monuments

Yesterday I took a cross-country flight to San Diego from my hometown of Milwaukee. I told my co-worker whom I was flying with that I often use my travels to see the beautiful landscapes of the United States and Canada. This photo was taken at around 40,000 feet in Arizona looking northwest to Utah’s Monument Valley. Even though I was only able to see it for a very brief time, it made me want to visit it in person some time!

Cloud Sharks

Cloud Sharks

The razor sharp tips of these Cascade mountain tops poked through the cloud layer below, reminding me of shark fins sticking out of the waters of an ocean. Taken in late April 2016 just south of the U.S.-Canadian border on my way home from Vancouver, British Columbia.

Sorry, Not Sorry Cubs

Game 1—NLDS

I was flying home from Toronto on October 7, 2016 and I had a short layover in Chicago. If you have ever flown into Chicago, most of the time the wind is coming from the west which means you approach O’Hare International from the east flying over Lake Michigan with the cityscape of Chicago to the left of the plane, which I strategically had knowing the possibility of the view (If you know me, I love aviation).

October 7 is pretty significant for Chicago Fans as it was Game 1 of the NLDS vs the Giants. This picture is of Wrigley Field ablaze in light only a few short hours before the game was to start.

Which is why we are originally here. I am a diehard Milwaukee Brewers fan. And if you don’t know, the Cubs are pretty close to the mortal enemies of the Brewers (as well as the Dirty Birds of St. Louis). Think Packers vs. Bears . . . But recently I have been reading articles about why Milwaukee fans need to cheer on the Cubs:

In short, NO—It is not OK to cheer for the Cubs if you are a Milwaukee fan. Milwaukee, a little more than one hour north of Chicago becomes Wrigley North when the two teams play, and to be honest, they are rude, impolite and if you ever read the papers, out of control at times (see article—Miller Park Brawl Ends In Arrests of Cubs Fans).

So, No I am not rooting for the Cubs. Sorry you haven’t won the World Series in a while. Yes you have a rich tradition and a great stadium rich in history, but in sports, you are not my team and never will be, plus I’m rooting for the small market teams.

Sorry, NOT sorry Cubs. Go Cleveland!
