Today’s entry is from reader Sonja, who included a cat photo. Her captions are indented:
My husband and I are long-time readers of Why Evolution Is True, so I thought I’d send you these photos of us from more carefree times in 2012, on a camping trip to Crater Lake (OR) and Redwood National Park.
Sonja at Crater Lake, August 12, 2012: We were visiting to watch the peak of the Perseid meteor showers. My husband took this photo of me standing on the rim of the caldera.
Hamilton and Sonja at Redwood National Park (Humboldt county, CA), August 15, 2012. If we look scruffy, it’s because it was our 5th day camping on the hard ground. The trees were awe-inspiring and beautiful, so tall we couldn’t capture them in photos in a way that conveys their true size.
This is Mizzy. She is 14 and has always had a cold little black heart, but she adores my 5 year old son. He’s the one who put the toy butterfly on her, to make her look like a beautiful, if chubby and grumpy, butterfly. I love the white spot on the right side of her face and the corresponding black spot on her front right paw, as if ink dripped off her face and onto her paw during development.
