Chasing Waterfalls

As anybody who has followed these photoblogging posts over the last couple of years knows, I’ve made it a mission to hit as many of Oregon’s various natural areas as I can. This is, as you might imagine, a fairly herculean task considering how much wilderness there is in this state. Nevertheless, a slight dent has been made. Since the beginning, I’ve always wanted to make it to Silver Falls State Park, which is supposed to be one of, if not the, standout of the whole system, featuring no less than ten waterfalls, lush forest, and some pretty serious cliffs.

The immediately obvious thing about Season 6 is the move from Showtime to Sci-Fi, along with a switch to HD and some way better visual effects.

Stargate SG-1: Season Five

Fresh off the climactic confrontation at the end of the last season, this one wraps up a couple of plotlines…and then mostly just keeps the others running, with no completely galaxy shaking events until Between Two Fires and Summit. That’s not a bad thing – there are plenty of really good one shots in this season, including 2001 and Proving Ground, and a couple that aren’t so hot. Individually, these episodes have a lot going for them, but it’s not until the last half of the season that things start to really pick up, and it won’t be until next season when things get really crazy. JAFFA, KREE! THERE ARE SPOILERS PAST THIS POINT
