Solitary Mountain

Solitary Mountain is a mountain in the Big Salmon Range of the Pelly Mountains in south-central Yukon, Canada, situated 49 km (30 mi) southwest of Faro. It is titled for its seclusion and is south of the Robert Campbell Highway.


Solitary Mountain comprises Late Cretaceous volcanics of the Carmacks Group, a 63,000 km2 (24,000 sq mi) volcanic group that may have its source from volcanism of the Yellowstone hotspot some 70 million years ago. Unlike much of the Carmacks Group, the volcanics encompassing Solitary Mountain are separated by the large strike-slip Teslin Fault.

Reveries of the Solitary Blogger

Changes in my life have made it difficult to post much of anything. But some things are too important to let slide.

Have you bought into the "so-called liberal media" myth that Democratic Presidential Candidate Sen. John Kerry's position on the Iraq War is muddled and unclear? Stop watching infotainment and check out the facts.

See Kevin Drum's outstanding piece on Kerry's stand. Despite what you might hear from CNN, Fox News, or MSNBC, Kerry's position has always been pretty clear.

Hello

Today I inaugurate "Reveries of the Solitary Blogger", an opportunity for me to jump into the raging tide of internet punditry, also known as "the blogsphere". Why am I doing this? There are many truly outstanding weblogs out there, most of which offer high grade content and vast readership. I congratulate them on their success. However, I've been itching for some time now to have my own outlet to speak -- my own chance to be heard, saying some things which I feel must be said. Maybe it isn't all "change-the-world" content. But its worth saying, hearing and reading. For some time now I've tried to serve as a clearinghouse for information on current affairs to my friends and family. This blog should help empty some mailboxes while not giving up my work. And if I'm lucky, we'll grow the network as well.

Responses and comments are always welcome. Drop me a line at don@holofernes.net.

Finally, I'm a big theatre-buff. And as I always like to say to my wife, just as the lights go down, "Here we go...."
