Spring Migration
March 13th, 2010 by robert

Spring, or at least the month of April, is a good time to vacate southcentral Alaska, when both snow and roads decompose, and inevitable snowstorms dash the hopes of everyone who believes that spring has arrived. Leaving in March means missing rapidly increasing, unbelievably warm sunshine, and perfect snow conditions for skiing and snow-biking. It may be the nicest month of all. . .

Looking Southwards

Yet a confluence of available air miles, spring breaks and time off from work have allowed Corey, Nico and I to go to Mexico on an adventure. We meet in Cancun on Monday and make our way to Isla Holbox for a few days of familial reconnection on the beach. While I may distracted by the abundant birdlife in the area, I suspect the boys may find more interest in other spring breakers, who surely will be around. From Isla Holbox we move counterclockwise through the Yucatan, exploring Mayan ruins and exotic habitats.

After nearly two weeks the boys return to school, and I set off for Chiapas and Oaxaca, searching for birds, a long-lost friend, and an answer to life’s most persistent question: Why? This quest is what catalyzed the long-overdue creation of this web site, and during this trip I will try to post updates as frequently as possible. While the blog begins with travel, it will evolve. I invite you bookmark this site and return here to see where it goes.

Meanwhile, I need to finish packing.

    Looking forward to following the beat of the rhythm. I already have a question for you. How did you create two blogrolls, Rhythm Sources and Susitna-Talkeetna?

    Thanks, Loudon. Two blogrolls is simply using “Links” to create a “New” link set. Enjoy!
