Through the Arch

The trails on the other side of the stone arch I posted recently. There’s a wee wooden footbridge in the back, and the Connecticut River beyond that. At Gillette Castle State Park in East Haddam, CT.

Coyoty eats Burger King grilled hot dogs, so you don’t have to.


Classic, with ketchup, relish, onions, and mustard.


Chili cheese.

Of course, I regret going to a fast food restaurant again. I’m usually disappointed. In this case, it’s clear that Burger King is skimping on the food and quality. I’ve tasted better boiled hot dogs, and I doubt the grill marks are authentic. They don’t give you a full hot dog, either. They cut a wedge out of each dog, not just slicing it for cooking reasons or holding the meager toppings. The dogs look skinnier than they should, and are overwhelmed by the buns. Burger King should be called Hot Dog Pauper.

Coyoty eats a half-rack of baby back ribs.

At Wood -n- Tap in Rocky Hill, CT.


With sweet potato fries and cole slaw. I was told they would be fall-off-the-bone and I could eat them with knife and fork. I didn’t get to pick them up because the bones slipped right out, and I didn’t need a knife. I probably could have eaten them with a spoon. Good ribs.


Salad with blue cheese vinaigrette.


Ballast Point Grapefruit Sculpin and coffee.

Most of the diversity outlined on the new tree has been hiding in plain sight.

Loki. and Thor. are on a branch near humans (Eukaryotes), but more ancient.
