Back In The Caldera

It’s been eleven days and 790 miles since my last post (does it sound like I’m confessing some grave sin here?). Well, I had to get where I was going, and I did travel 2oo sightseeing miles out of my way to get there. Plus it’s hard to type in a tent when an Idaho wind is threatening to blow you all the way to Kansas.

Finally, though, I made it. I am where I’m supposed to be for the summer. I could say I chose this date of a southwestern US solar eclipse  (which I will sadly not be in the direct path of) as some sort of cosmic re-entrance into the blogosphere. Actually the decision was pretty much random – I sat down at the table in my warm and funky government housing apartment this morning and started pounding out a post. There will be much more to come – I just wanted to get this little bit out. My computer is all set up and my camera has lots of extra batteries. 

I am back in the Yellowstone caldera!
