I'm not dead yet


So rather than be an unemployed geoscience type this summer, I decided to be a an unemployed geoscience type that travels. So for the last two months, I have been backpacking in various places in the western US. Here are a few geology influenced pictures.

Jumble Lake

Cirques, tarns, moraines, and an active rockfall (notice dust cloud on mountain on the left) in John Muir Wilderness, Sierra Mountains.

Sag Pond

Sag Pond on San Andreas Fault at the south end of the Carrizo Plain.

Point Reyes

"I'm not dead yet"

Good to know! ;)

I trust you'll have a whole bunch of photos to share with us upon your return?

I just found new photos I had not seen yet on Flicker. Cool! The giant Redwoods especially have always been something I would like to see in person.

I didn't know you were unemployed! Darn, I was thinking of hitting you up for a job (or relevant contacts). Traveling is the way to go when you can, keeps one sharp, I think (or even more broke?).

Nice pics!

Ha, no job contacts from me. The most I ever got was "maybe SNWA could use someone"....
