The Thursday Picture – View from my Truck

IMG_1201

I’ve decided to add a new feature to my hiking blog, “I’m Over the Hill.” My new feature, “View from my Truck” will be published on occasion when, well, I have an interesting “View from my Truck!”  Of course, all of my “View from my Truck” pictures will be taken when I am parked!  😀

I am fortunate to be working in a profession where my projects really require me to get outside and away from my office at least 2-3 times per week.  I was taught the value of “dirty boots” engineering and construction management as a young engineering technician.  In other words, you can’t design or oversee an infrastructure project from behind your desk.  I am convinced that dirty boots engineering and construction management leads to better infrastructure improvement projects.

Fortunately, my dirty boots philosophy takes me out to some beautiful spots.  For example, this picture was taken from my truck on an old logging road in the Santa Cruz Mountains.  I like how the clouds seemed to draw the eyes down to the valley.  Look for many more “View from my Truck” entries over the next year.

If you’re looking for me, I’m over the hill.
