Fox Forest in Pictures

For this week’s Monday Geology Picture I shared a picture of a stone wall incorporating a large glacial erratic. I took this picture recently in Fox Forest in southern New Hampshire. Yesterday, my husband and I went on a lovely hike in the forest. We saw quite a few glacial erratics… parts of the forest are piled high with them! We also saw many stone walls incorporating glacially dropped stones. Most …

Kolmanskop in Pictures

Last month I spent some time in Namibia for work. During one of my days off, I was able to spend some time visiting Kolmanskop. Located in the Namib Desert a few miles outside of the seaside town of Lüderitz, Kolmanskop is a “Ghost Town” that is the remains of a former diamond mining town. Kolmanskop was founded shortly after diamonds were discovered in the region in 1908 and was abandoned …

Constantia Nek Walk in Pictures

Below are a few more pictures from a recent walk along the Constantia Nek contour path here in Cape Town. I featured a picture from this same walk in this week’s “Monday Geology Picture” post. I feel very fortunate to live in a city that has many beautiful walks and hikes. I’ll do my best to explore some more of them– and re-visit some old favorites– in 2014.

LASI V Field Trip in Pictures

I’ve been meaning for months to post some pictures from the LASI V Field Trip that I participated in just over a year ago in November 2012. However, despite my best intentions, I never ended up posting some field trip pictures. This is primarily because I lost all of my own LASI V field trip pictures when my laptop and a hard drive were stolen from my apartment back in …

Monday Geology Picture: A Lovely, Geological View in Stellenbosch

Yesterday my husband and I joined our good friends Patrick and Nia for lunch at the renowned Terroir Restaurant located on the Kleine Zalze wine farm in beautiful Stellenbosch, South Africa. The food was delicious, and we also enjoyed stunning views of the Cape Fold Belt, such as the view in this week’s “Monday Geology Picture.” Speaking of Patrick and Nia, they’ve kindly sent through some pictures from their recent …

The Last Train to Nowhere in Pictures

I thought I would continue with a few more posts from Alaska. My husband and I were in Nome, Alaska during July – September 2012. On sunny (and some stormy) days we were generally working. However, on days with poor weather and high seas or winds, we often had some time to explore Nome and the surrounds. One day, we drove up the road to visit The Last Train to Nowhere, …

A Drive to Salmon Lake, Alaska in Pictures

On one of our last days in Nome, Alaska, my husband and I had the opportunity to drive up the road to a little place called Salmon Lake. The U.S. Bureau of Land Management operates a summer campground on the shore of Salmon Lake. We drove up to Salmon Lake to check out the beautiful scenery (especially the gorgeous, snow-capped Kigluaik Mountains) and also to take a look at some regional …

Nome, Alaska in Pictures: Part II

Here are some more pictures from the two months which my husband and I recently spent working in Nome, Alaska. Today I thought I’d share some pictures of the town square, which is called Anvil City Square. The town square is adorned with several items which honor the town’s gold mining history (a giant gold pan, gold dredge buckets, statues of the people who first discovered the gold, and information …

Nome, Alaska in Pictures: Part I

I haven’t done an “…in Pictures” post for awhile, and I have many, many photographs from Nome, Alaska to share with you. I just spent 2 months living and working in Nome, which is an unusual town filled with gold miners in the summer and sled dog racers in the winter. About 3,000 people call Nome home year round. No roads lead to Nome, so everything (people, cars, mining equipment, …
