Monday Geology Picture: Glass House Mountains, Australia

I have been terribly neglecting my blog this year. However, I have a good excuse: over the past few months I have accepted a new job working as a geologist for Anglo American… and  I have moved my family to beautiful Brisbane, Australia. On top of that, I am mother to a young son (18 months old now) and I’m also studying part-time… so, I have my hands very full!

However, now that the chaos of moving is over, I thought I would revive my blog… once again! There is much new geology to see here in our new home country, so I’ll try to share some georneys (geology journeys!) here more regularly!

As a start, here is a picture of the majestic, magical Glass House Mountains in Queensland. These mountains are young (26-27 million year old) volcanic plugs. I’ll blog more about their geology soon! For now, enjoy this teaser shot.
