He's Not My President

"In the counsels of Government, we must guard against the acquisition of unwarranted influence, whether sought or unsought, by the Military Industrial Complex. The potential for the disastrous rise of misplaced power exists, and will persist. We must never let the weight of this combination endanger our liberties or democratic processes. We should take nothing for granted. Only an alert and knowledgeable citizenry can compel the proper meshing of the huge industrial and military machinery of defense with our peaceful methods and goals so that security and liberty may prosper together."

- President Eisenhower - January 1961

Crystal Mountain Snowshoeing

REI gave us a day off today to go either skiing or snowshoeing. I went with the snowshoe group and had a great time.

The weather forecast did not look too great but we ended up having great weather; no wind at all and just clouds coming and going. Perfect weather for a snowshoe trip. Here are some of the pictures.
