Well it is heading for the end of another year, and I thought it was time to update you on my doings. No big trips or anything really dramatic since the purchase of my house last April. However, life has still been pretty exciting.

I went kayaking several times this summer; I still don’t have a roll, but I did get to do some fun water—the Snake River in Wyoming, including the Canyon (and did not flip, so no swim). I also did part of the Hoback and Grey’s in the same area with some friends, new and old. Matt took me down the “Milk Run” above Brown’s Canyon on the Arkansas near Buena Vista, CO then I did some mt biking the following day.

Another trip was rafting on the Colorado through Westwater, then a couple more days of mt biking near Fruita. Thanks to the Matt, who invited me, the new friends that hauled me and my stuff down the river, and to Mark for the hospitality so I could bike for a few days. I also spent an afternoon hiking and driving around the Colorado Monument National Park.

Work is good, still learning new stuff all the time, and getting into the field which is wonderful. I have gotten sunny summer days and some snowy hikes already. In early December, I will be heading to San Francisco for the American Geophysical Union (AGU) conference with some 10,000+ participants. I will host WyCEHG’s (my project) information booth most of the time, but I am looking forward to seeing some old Antarctic friends as well as some SF friends. Later in the week, I will head south to San Diego to visit some other friends for the weekend.

I guess nothing too exciting, but life has been busy and full this year, and I hope all is well for you.
Happy Holidays—all of them—to all of you!
