The inlet on which I grew up, in Port Moody. At low tide, we used to walk across the mud flats from Old Orchard Park to Rocky Point, sinking knee-deep into oily muck with every step. By the end of summer, the soles of my feet were a crosshatch of barnacle scars. Great place to grow up.

A rainbow-like phenomenon called a "Glory" encircles a downtown building just now.

A rare night out in Vancouver. Won't be here much over the next little while, this is nice.

Love San Francisco's old streetcars. Also, is a gorgeous day here right now... ideal for a city stroll and coffee at Blue Bottle.

Woke up in Nevada just now and this is the view from the room, aboard Amtrak's California Zephyr. We'll be in San Francisco by this evening.

Goodnight from the railroad!

Countless amazing vistas throughout Colorado and Utah, like this one, a massive bluff where some fool planted a flagpole at the tip. I 💓 train travel. We spent from 8:30am to 8:30pm in the sky lounge, taking in all the stunning views. Now it's off to bed in our cabin. When we wake up we'll be in Nevada (I think). This is Amtrak's California Zephyr from Denver to SF and it's the most picturesque route in the country, according to our conductor.

Ever seen a smaller mobile coffee shop? This guy has got life figured out, dishing espresso from his VW Bug in downtown Denver, Colorado. #smallbusiness

The sun goes down over an expansive sky as we speed through Iowa farmland last night on Amtrak's California Zephyr.

It's impossible to resist taking a million photos of The Bean. I love how the city is reflected in it. In this shot, the lines from the background match the foreground, and show of the towers of Michigan Avenue. I love public art!

The view of all of Chicago from the 96th floor of the John Hancock tower. Free! Thanks @thehouseofdarling for the recommendation.

After an amazing overnight train from NYC, we're having lunch atop @chicagoathletichotel, with a stunning view of Millennium Park. Truly once in a lifetime.
