Stanford University

MemChu (Memorial Church) No, its not crooked.  Photographer was off-kilter.

Hoover Tower & Stanford locals.

Looking down from the Hoover Tower Observation deck.

View south Downtown San Jose, way way back right...that little line of white buildings, seemingly at the base of the foothills.

Kawika and I went to Stanford University campus today to try out my new Canon G11.  I gave Dad my digi SLR, 'cause it was too big and bulky and heavy and etc...  He must'uve felt guilty 'cause he bot me the Canon. (I am not complaining, but he did get the better end of the deal! : .)

It was soooo clear, we could see all the way north to San Francisco, all the way south to Downtown San Jose, the Diablo Mountain Range to the east, and Stanford Dish to the west.  

AWESOME!  Can't believe I've lived in the Bay Area for almost 20 years and have never been up in the tower!!!  What a view!  Campus is gorgeous!  Historical.  (Don't ask me for any details, I can't remember now...heheheheh!  All I remember is Lou Henry Hoover [wife of the 31st president, Herbert Hoover] was the first female geologist that graduated from Stanford.)

5 Good Things...
#1 - G11
#2 - Incredible views!
#3 - Plain tart yogurt and mochi bits
#4 - 2 hours at the gym = SWEAT!  (cycle and step class!)
#5 - EGTL!!!
