A collection of distilled sarcastic wisdom, numerous photographs, discussions of books and stuff to learn and more stuff to think about from a retired economics professor turned blogger and photographer.
The view from our living room window in St. George UT is a six foot white cinder block wall. This photo is an example of the never ending beauty of the skies, the clouds, and the mountains along the Wasatch Range. The mountain with the peak is Mt. Timpanogos which stretches seven miles into Utah County. Please double click.
I've likely taken well over a thousand photos of the mountain to the east of us, and I know every rise and bump and ridge and rocky outcropping alont the range; White in the winter, green in the spring and summer, red with patches of yellow in the autumn, the changing clouds and sunlight result in a constantly new scene many times throughout the day and early evening.
Welcome to the Curmudgeonly Professor blog. I hope you will stay a little while and scroll down to see some of the thousands of photos posted over the past five years. Please leave your comments. I especially welcome blog readers from the far corners of the world who have found their way here through the miracle of the internet. I am always glad to hear from you, about where you live, and, if you like, send a photo that I can repost here.
The High sandy ridge at the South End of the Salt Lake Valley. The highway (I-15) around the west end of this ridge is known as "Point of the Mountain", which is a bit misleading and might, instead, be called "Point of the Great Sand Dune." When we first moved to Salt Lake in the year 2000, there were no homes along the ridge above the valley.
This poor little moon looks a lot more insignificant without benefit of a telephoto lens.
Mt. Timpanogos, or "Timp" as it is called locally, is a massive seven-mile long behemoth stretching from the South Salt Lake Valley into Utah County. A view of the mountain was one of the coveted advantages of my north sixth floor office in the Marriott School of Business at BYU. My wife and I always thought the projection about two-thirds down the mountain looked like a cabin or a house. Double click for best view.
