Time in a box

© Tim LaBarge 2008 In September, my folks brought me a box of slides and asked if I would scan them so digital copies exist. I waited, of course, until yesterday. With a little editing help from Leo (“That’s a funny one, papa”) I decided to get started. The images that pop up on the […]


The Syncline

© Tim LaBarge 2008 I went for a good ride recently through a crazy network of trail known as the Syncline. The story appeared in the Travel section of the Oregonian. It’s on the Washington side of the Columbia River…and it’s spectacular. My friend Chad and I were getting geared up to set out when […]

The Old Country…

Maybe it’s all this rain the past few weeks, but I’m daydreaming about last winter’s trip south of the border and wishing we had something like that lined up for this month or next. © Tim LaBarge 2008
