Ahh, I've got bunches!

The Dude abides.
The Donut King protests.
Yesterday I not only met my first Flickr contact in real life but I met the man who plays God with Flickr's Explore algorithm, Jacob Rome. I know Jake from the Flickr Group, DEL*TE ME! Uncensored, a no-holds-barred photo critique group and the driving force behind his photo's rocket-like ascent to the top of the Explore pages.
For those who don't know the Donut King the backstory is that Jake, using the following protests, has been able to garner enough attention that the activity drives the photos to the top of Flickr's Explore (most interesting photos) pages, much to the delight of Explore-haters and much to the ire of Explore Whores.
We Demand Donuts
And then there was this recent gem:
Jake is visiting Salt Lake this week and we made plans to meet at a local brewpub, Squatter's, for dinner, beer and cheer. At one point in the evening we joked that we should made one of Jake's Flickr-famous signs; Jake headed up to the front desk to ask for a piece of paper or even a placemat but they refused his request and in protest he used our dinner tab to make his feelings known.
Of course, in making that sign it led to his realisation that he was also without marker, which led to:
Here's Jake making the signs (which later became my souvenirs):
And proof that neither one of us are trolls:
More photos are in my Flickrset.

My wife and I relocated to Salt Lake City from Buffalo, NY this past August, she's a health researcher for the government and was given a 2-year post in SLC, which has thus far been exceedingly kind to us. We absolutely love it here.
We're both interested in the outdoors (in fact we met though our old hiking club back in Buffalo) and for us, SLC is a fantastic combination of urban dwelling with easy access to wilderness. One of our favorite local getaways is the Bonneville Shoreline Trail, which runs along the Wasatch Front more or less following the ancient Lake Bonneville shoreline high above the city.
With Manray out of town for work, our dog, Kerby and I were left to spend our time outdoors alone so we made for the hills Monday evening to revisit a section of the Trail at the north end of the city.
More photos of the trail...
