# Sunset Near Rinkebyterassen

A dusty summer sunset on a road just below Rinkebyterassen.

# Berggården

In his alternate history science fiction art book Flodskörden, Simon Stålenhag lists three "Vertical Cities" in Järvafältet: Hägerstalund, Eggeby and Berggården. Hägerstalund and Eggeby are - in our universe - still there. The former is a farm where you can find a Moroccan restaurant, Hägerstalunds Bibi House, and the latter is a public park with theater, circuses and such.

# Homey Bee

The bee-hotel Homey Bee - with living spaces, flowers and water all in one place - opens its doors!

It turns out that MathJax sets cookies to remember your preferences. Specifically, the mjx.menu cookie. I looked around for hints as how to disable this cookie in the configuration, but found none, so here is my solution:

# Ney Springs and Faery Falls

Visiting an abandoned hot springs resort and the nearby falls.

# Cottonwood Creek at Louie's Place

The first time I saw Cottonwood Creek was in December 2013, in Mariposa. When I saw that they were playing again just two hours away I decided to catch up with them. This is Cottonwood Creek playing at Louie's Place on the day of the 71st La Grange rodeo.

# La Grange Rodeo

When I went to La Grange to see Cottonwood Creek and saw that there would be a rodeo, I figured I had to go watch and get the full American experience. Here it is - the 71st La Grange rodeo.

# Joshua Tree National Park

More than just a desert, I visited the Joshua Tree national park on my way back to the bay area.

# General George S. Patton Memorial Museum

General George S. Patton Memorial Museum is an armor museum right by the entrance to Joshua Tree National Park.

# An Evening in Sedona

Almost twelve years since I was last here. It's still a hippie place with about ten thousand residents, but it seems like there's much more tourism nowadays. Main street was full of people, and I had to park a bit away.

# Lower Antelope Canyon

Lower Antelope Canyon is a place that is a textbook example of color science. In particular, how the color temperature ("warm" reds vs "cold" blues) drops as you go from brightly illuminated surfaces to the shadows.

# Horseshoe Bend

This part of the Colorado River has been photographed so much that it exists more on Instagram than in the real world. In fact, the real-world Horseshoe Bend is but a projection of the platonic ideal of Horseshoe Bend, which exists on Instagram.

# Navajo Power Plant

A coal-fired power plant near Page, Arizona. Capacity: 2250MW from three 750MW units that consume 8 million tons of coal per year. It will be closed down as its lease expires in 2019.

# Monument Valley

I just drove through Monument Valley, since my rental car couldn't be driven on unpaved roads.

# Natural Bridges

Sandstone bridges.

# Arches

The arches in Arches National Park are a lot bigger than you think.
