This is really lovely - frozen Oregon, from January.

January 2017 saw record snow fall and cold temps in Oregon. With prolonged dips into the single digits, White River Falls froze up in a way never captured before.

A little video of the prep work I’m doing on an Oligocene land tortoise from around 30myo. This great specimen of Stylemys nebrascensis was found in the White River Badlands of Pennington County, South Dakota. I’m planning a trip out there this July. Still a lot more prep on this one to go but I love the colours on the shell.

“You weren’t afraid to passionately talk about what you loved. You would break out of your introverted shell just long enough to preach about how overpriced the french fries were, before returning back into it.”

“Hey, that was warranted,” You crossed your arms and looked straight ahead in contempt, “They cost nearly twenty bucks!”

“…It was cute.”

CHEAP THRILLS

“‘I said get down!’” The shout was all too clear this time, as you noticed a tiny red spec flickering on your collarbone. Before your reflexes had the second needed to react, you felt the force of a car slam into your gut, sending you crashing to the ground with the weight of another body on top of you.

Not a millisecond later, another plink had sounded through the glass, as a bullet whizzed in the trajectory following directly where you had been standing.

“‘You idiot!’”

The Courier had pushed you. And now he was looking at you directly in the eye.

His eyes

“‘You belong to me now.’” Your breathing halted as his emotionless, honeyed voice reached your ears. “And I trust you know what that means…”

Of course you knew what that meant.

You were now the property of one of the Coven.

And your life from this point forward was going to be a hellish nightmare.

You could’ve met under better circumstances. Under much better circumstances.

But, there you were, drunk beyond all comprehension and non-coherently sprawled out on some frat boy’s mattress. And, if it wasn’t for Byun Baekhyun, you would have been much worse off than simply having a nasty hangover. You had to close your eyes as tears began to fall and think back to where this started.

And there it was. The confirmation of your worst fears. Despite the benefit of the doubt that you had incessantly given him. Despite the countless times he had professed his undying dedication to your relationship. Despite four years of unexplainable happiness together.

“Well,” Finally, he composed himself. “Good job getting away from that bastard. After all, you’re your own silver lining”

“My own… What?”

“Y’know, a silver lining.” Sehun turned to you and smiled. “A sense of hope. A formidable destiny that cannot be taken away from you. Something that has no right to be stolen.”

Landscape Language

Thalweg (n) – the line that traces the lowest points along the length of a riverbed or valley

Along the thalweg, a river flows its fastest as it follows its deepest channel.  The thalweg connects the lowest points of a river, and is a natural dividing line in a valley. Thalwegs have been used many times as natural borderlines between properties and even countries. However, the exact geography of a thalweg can change as often as the river changes course. The braided rivers of Mount Rainier fluctuate more than most, making their thalwegs poor borderlines.

i.
Arms so inked they pass for black, lips always kissing a lit cigarette. He was a Bad Boy, in the most cliche of ways.

ii.
She was an angel, just missing wings and a halo.

iii.
She wouldn’t go bad for him, and he couldn’t turn good, not even for her.

iv.
In time, white water will carve river rock.

v.
They learned to love in shades of grey, in undefined twilight at dusk and dawn.

vi.
Even the purest princess can get addicted to smoking. Even the fiercest of dragons need more than the fire of their own breath to keep them warm.
