I’m still trying to balance my staff job against the very long queue of freelance work that I signed up for before that job came along. Which means, sadly, no time for blogging. I haven’t given up the idea, though (I really love this blog). I just need a few more months to clear my plate.
In the meantime, I’ve been sorting through old photos (remember film? I do!) in a quest to find the right wall art to go with our new coffee table. So I finally got these pics scanned onto a flash drive.
They’re from my graduate school days (that would be the summer of 2005). I did the field research for my thesis in Environmental Science at a small, remote research station just north of the Brooks Range in Alaska. It remains one of the great experiences of my life (eight solid weeks, camping in the wilderness! I can’t even imagine it now!).
I’ll save the details of what that research was about for another day (plant respiration! It was about plant respiration, and it was really really cool!), and leave you with just these pictures for now.
Feel free to tell me which should go up on the wall…
