Catching up

Posted by Jessica Ball

It’s been a while since my last post, for various reasons – family matters and beginning-of-the-semester hoopla among them. I hope to be blogging regularly again soon, but in the meantime, I’ll have to make do with posting a few of my favorite photos from this summer. (Which was also a time of interrupted blogging, but for natural-disaster-based reasons rather than human ones.)

In no particular order…

Rimstone formation inside the Soda Dam near Jemez Springs, NM.

Garden of the Gods Park in Colorado Springs, CO (from a distance).

Capulin cinder cone volcano in northern New Mexico.

Columnar jointing in a lava flow front at Capulin.

The Las Conchas Fire burning above Los Alamos, NM in July 2011.

Huerfano Butte, a volcanic plug near Walsenberg, CO.

Indonesian shadow puppets of the latest Merapi eruption from "The Arts of Survival" exhibit at the Museum of International Folk Art, Santa Fe, NM.

A prarie dog showdown in the Valles Caldera, New Mexico.
