The recent news (Dec. 13, 2007) that the local chip manufacturer AMI, or more correctly, AMIS, is going to be sold to another semiconductor company came as a shock to Pocatello. AMI is the city's largest private employer, and has been around for 4 decades, making it almost as old as the integrated circuit itself.
AMI is considered a good corporate citizen, paying its taxes, keeping clean relative to other factories, and involved in all facets of Pocatello life including cultural activities, charities, and education. We hope the new owner keeps the existing facilities here.

Coonie is a fairly regular night visitor. If we moved away we'd miss her. Wildlife photography normally requires a long lens. However, in this case, the photos were taken at a distance of about a foot to a few feet away, and so only a wide-angle-through-slight-telephoto lens (17-50mm) was needed!

By the way, it is snowing again! This is really more snow than usual, and this is our 13th winter here. The weatherpeople predicted a "mostly dry" weekend, but as of 12:30pm Saturday it's still snowing a little. We have maybe 10 inches of snow on the ground now. I took some snow pictures around 10:30 AM this morning, which I may post next.

Autumn is my favorite season in the mountains of Pocatello. The temperature is cool and the air is often magically clean. West Buckskin Road, which is actually east of Buckskin Road and is therefore often just called Buckskin Road, gives mountain bikers a nice, fairly long, and hilly ride.

Welcome to the Pocatello photo blog! I am new to this game of blogging, but Barbara C. Smith, a former Pocatellan who has set up a blog site for her post-Pocatello town of residence, West Sacramento, CA, suggested that it might be a fun thing for me to set a similar site up for Pocatello. So here it is. I have to admit that I don't have much time for the upkeep of this site, but hope that it will be of use to the public anyway.
I have a whole bunch of photos of the Pocatello area at http://pbase.com/vkantabu/pocatello, and have also posted photos of Pocatello at Webshots and flickr.com.
