Yes I know there have been a few of these of late, but hell there’s lots of material and reconstructions on display and I do like pterosaurs. However, where before this tended to manifest itself on various casts this time we can go to both [...]

Apparently the “geologists heart beer” stereotype has gotten around to wired. Link here. Note that this is an old video, but I didn't notice it on other geology blogs the last couple of months.Why is it that geologists are famed for their love [...]

My mother noticed that I hadn't been blogging much lately. That's true - in fact, I made a New Year's Resolution to stop blogging, at least for the semester. I've got additional responsibilities this semester which are keeping me extra busy, so I'm [...]

We have received a break in our winter weather (although the break is apparently over this week) and hiking in Sedona is a January past time here in Northern Arizona. I joined a few friends for a geology and archaeology hike not too long ago.Part [...] | Impressum
