July 23, 2010

Okay, so maybe sitting on a commercial airplane isn’t technically “the field”, but, then again, geology is everywhere!

    Dang, my wife flew right over that the next day. Now I really know what I missed. I caught a glimpse of the rim from I-5, but still haven’t really seen MSH since an idyllic day in the late 1970s when it was still conventionally beautiful.

    I flew from Seattle to SFO a few weeks ago. If I hadn’t checked my camera, I could have gotten a shot of Ranier, Adams, St. Helens, and The Sisters all lined up.
