Visiting Crater Lake

After visiting California's Coastal Redwoods, we traveled up to Oregon's Crater Lake and loved it. What a great, amazing place to visit. Stunningly beautiful and a great time in the campground. I put a few shots on Flickr mingled with the Coastal Redwoods but the full gallery is here. James, Autumn, and I hiked down to the lake -- where James and I jumped in. It was cold.





Visiting the Coastal Redwoods

Back when Michelle was all preggers in 2015, we took a light hiking and camping trip to the coastal redwoods in California and Oregon's stunning Crater Lake. What a trip! These are the highlights from California. Some on Flickr and the full gallery here.






Mother's Day 2015

On an amazing Mother's Day, 2015, Kimmi and Mike hosted both families for a memorable announcement - that the baby soon-to-be-known as Morgan was on her way! Full gallery here.





Babypalooza Photos

We held the first Mitchell-Geiser-Ruch Babypalooza in June at the infamous Club Ruch in Pennsylvania and it was wonderful. Full photo gallery is available here.

Creating Blind Spots

From David Frum, a Republican reflecting on the ongoing destruction of the Republican party in "The Great Republican Revolt."

Against all evidence, both groups interpreted the Tea Party as a mass movement in favor of the agenda of the Wall Street Journal editorial page. One of the more dangerous pleasures of great wealth is that you never have to hear anyone tell you that you are completely wrong.

Unfortunately this also appears to be a blindspot of the Clintons - they surround themselves with people that either are afraid to tell them when they are wrong or simply see the world the same way. As I have built a staff, one of my goals is that those around me are not afraid to tell me when I am wrong. And I encourage them not to take it personally when I disagree. And time will tell who is right.

Future of Cities and Cars

As cars are automated and no longer require drivers, the impact on cities will be significant. Not just because of congestion in the streets, but by freeing up a ton of space currently wasted on parking. The implications are fascinating... and discussed in this Mother Jones article.
