Back from field work safe and sound

March 22, 2007

Yet another field season in Patagonia…and i’ve made it out alive and relatively unscathed. Although there’s little to no jet lag involved with the journey from Patagonia to California, it is 24 hours of traveling and if you’re like me and can’t sleep on planes (what a drag!)….it feels about as bad as jet lag.

I will blog more about it and post some photos soon…this weekend I hope. There are a lot of great posts out there in the geoblogosphere that I’d like to catch up on too…and Highly Allochthonous has moved to Scienceblogs…congrats.

Here’s a photo from this year of us on one of the more beautiful days I’ve experienced down there. That’s the torres of Torres del Paine in the background. A lot of tourists travel a long way and never see them because they’ll be shrouded in clouds for days at a time.

    Welcome home! Great field photo! Looking forward to more.

    Also, we’re in dire need of a fresh “Where on Google Earth?” challenge. I was sorely tempted to post a couple of my own, but I didn’t want to usurp your good idea.
