Fremont Water Conservation Art

Earlier this Summer the city of Fremont commissioned murals to be painted on the water tanks in the park by my house. I didn’t know this until they started outlining then painting them (see the first photos below in contrast to the last photos). Apparently its part of not only a water conservation initiative, but also an artificial trout passage. I’m very lucky to live near such a nice park.

My Trip to Humboldt

This Summer I went on a short road trip to Humboldt County. I love the area, especially Ferndale. It’s too bad there are no real jobs up there and it is so remote. On the other hand, that is probably exactly what keeps it such a nice place. I got to visit my good friends Troi and Phyllis. Hoping to go back soon.

Social Media Links

For anyone interested, or with a particular inclination to a social network, I thought I’d post a list of the places where I currently have profiles. It’s mostly the same content on all the pages, for unique posting’s I usually just post them here (johnstaedler.com)
