I’ve been doing some long term maintenance on Starbuck.org. As a result, some trip reports were removed and others have had the order of their photos mixed up.
I’m working on this but it will take some time. I don’t quite seem to have the time I used to put into the site. More trip reports are coming though.
And…. we’re back. After taking a summer hiatus, we are back to posting. I’m fifty trips behind? A hundred? Oh I forget. (Actually, it’s more). Alright, I will try to post a few a month.
Well 2016 is finally over, it seemed like a long year. It was a quieter year for the site with only 22 posts but I was out more than ever with 55 days exploring. I took 4,797 photos during those days out, which is not a record but close.
2015 was a busy and eventful year. I was out exploring for 48 days, which is more than last year and averages nearly every weekend. And I’m still way behind on posting trips…
9/6/15: I added a few more photos and text to the Silver Dyke Mine. Mostly about the stamp mill remains I found there. Also, I added photos from a return trip to the Belmont Mill and mine we made earlier this year.
7/12/15: Updated the Silver Dyke Mine page with photos from a revisit in late 2014. Added quite a few more photos from inside and our visit to the upper camp.
Don’t forget to like my Facebook page: Starbuck’s Exploring. I occasional post photos there that don’t seem to make it to this site.
2/20/15: Updated “Zion Wash” trip with some background information. Finally learned a bit more on who built the place.
Also, check out our new Facebook page: Starbuck’s Exploring. I’m posting news and a few photos there. Be sure to like the page for updates.
So after I posted the misc photos for 2014, I realized there was a lot of photographs from 2013 that never made it on the site; way more than half. I was pretty busy in 2013. Highlights for me include a trip to the Mt Wilson Observatory and hiking over 70 miles in Joshua Tree NP (in one week). I was out for an amazing 77 days in 2013. I did quite a few trips.
I realized that I am way behind on posts. Years behind in fact. Oh well. I will continue to post new and old stuff as I have time. Anyway, in a small effort to fix that, I decided to post some miscellaneous photos from 2014 that did not make it into a trip report yet.
Two years ago I re-created this site on WordPress. (The site has existed since 1997.) Overall, I have to say I still like the format. Lately though, I’ve slowed down on posting. I’m still going out often, but I’ve been taking a hiatus on posting to work on other long delayed projects.
