Living in the Bay Area, I had forgotten about the concept of 'Autumn'. Fortunately Minneapolis, Minnesota didn't -- and delivered a lovely Halloween weekend for walking around downtown. (After visiting Portland recently too, I'm starting to think smaller cities might be on to something...)

Grand Canyon of the Yellowstone, Norris Geyser basin, loads of bison, elk, and one bald eagle -- all accessible only on snow vehicles (in our case, snowmobiles). Super cool - particularly all the rivers flowing in -8 degree weather due to all the hot springs in the area.

The view from the back yard of our ski house rental in Spanish Peaks, Big Sky, Montana. Montana really is gorgeous, I can't stress this enough.

Today's pretty views are brought to you by the letter M, for Monterey, California, and the number 17, for 17-mile-drive (which turned into a surprisingly hilly 30+ miles). Spontaneous bike rides FTW! (Map goo.gl/dC4uHt)

Annoying video title, but actually a really nice visualization of people's ideal wealth distribution, the perceived wealth distribution, and the actual distribution.

After a hardk0r 200-mile-run-in-the-rain weekend for my friends running the Ragnar relay (Ultra version) from SF to Calistoga, CA (I was helping out as one of the mandatory volunteers each team needs to provide), the team, supporters, and volunteers took it easy on Sunday, hitting up a few vineyards and one burger joint on the way back to the South Bay.

California wine country seems to just want to be photographed - each place was gorgeous! Pictures are mostly from the Francis Ford Coppola winery, but also from Miner Family Winery and Robert Mondavi.

Also, might just have to do this one day when my ACL heals: http://www.ragnarrelay.com/race/napavalley

What do you want to do this weekend? Beach? Mountains? Why not both?! I was pleasantly surprised to find that the beaches around Lake Tahoe are really nice, not too crowded, and serve up gorgeous views (and very comfortable weather).

Thanks to +Nicholas Edelman for taking me exploring even with my busted knee!
