    Backcountry camping with his oldest son, enjoying the all of nothing
    I don't feel the need to camp ever again. Love the hiking, the visuals, the air. But the gritty, fire-smoked world of a backcountry bedroom? You can keep it. And tents? I'm so done with tents. Assuming you can even set one up properly, its spindle...

    Who's who of Southern California wildlife (and how to keep them away)
    For a city slicker or a nature lover, a wildlife encounter can be alarming. Ann Bryant, executive director of the BEAR League (www.savebears.org), a Lake Tahoe-based nonprofit whose name stands for Bear Education, Aversion, Response, fields about 25 calls...
  • Paul Greenberg: House and home

    It's an old saying: First we shape our buildings, then they shape us. But like many old sayings, it may be more pat than true. It may sound like a great tribute to the power and influence of architecture in our lives, but it's too neat. It sounds too much...
  • A low-pressure job has him in high spirits

    Did something wicked the other day, not uproariously wicked, just slightly so, in one of those little subversive ways husbands handle mundane requests. After my wife asked me to turn up the water pressure in the house, I turned it down, even lower than it...
