After a jaunt to the midwest for ISMB, I spent some weeks with friends and family hiking to waterfalls near Mount Hood and getting excellent views of the Columbia River Gorge.
Next up was a trip to the Bay area – the free Cable Car museum was cool to see.
The semester’s in full swing now, with everyone returning to classes (except for the lucky few on sabbatical). I flew to Washington, D.C. with some undergraduates and gave a talk at the CNB-MAC workshop, a precursor to the ACM-BCB conference.
After some delays getting home, Mt. Hood welcomed me back to PDX.
P.S. I also updated the header image from my July trip back home to Wisconsin – that was a lot of lawn to mow during my high school years.
