Monday Geology Picture: A Gorgeous Cape Town Inselberg

Posted by Evelyn Mervine

Cape Town view with an inselberg, September 2010.

Well, I’ve fallen somewhat behind with my regular posting, such as the Geology Word of the Week. I’m afraid that these final few months of my PhD are going to sometimes keep me from regular blogging. These last few months are tough!  Over the past few weeks, I have been very busy finishing up the very last of my labwork for my thesis (yay!), traveling between Cape Cod and Cape Town (yet again!), and also taking on important blogging tasks such as writing up my strong opinions on science kits for girls and coming up with the Georneys What to Buy a Geologist for Christmas: 2011 list.

This next week is going to be very busy with work, and I’m afraid I just won’t have time for substantial blogging. I’ll try to write up another Geology Word of the Week post next weekend. Meanwhile, to keep this blog active, I’ll post a pretty geology picture every day this week, starting with the beautiful Cape Town inselberg picture above. I’m sure that many other geobloggers and blog readers are feeling very busy finishing up tasks in time for the festive holiday season. Hopefully, these pretty pictures will help keep us motivated to finish out the year’s work.

Have you also been neglecting your geoblog recently and been feeling stressed? Is there just not enough time for blogging this week? Feel free to also post a picture-a-day with me this week, if you want. Everyone loves pretty geology pictures!
