For this week's “Monday Geology Picture” post I thought I'd share a picture from my trip to Dullstroom in Mpumalanga, South Africa, a few weeks ago. I took this picture as we were driving late one evening, just before sunset. I didn't take a close look at the rounded boulders dotting the field, ...

Yesterday my husband and I took advantage of the sunny summer weather here in Cape Town and went for an easy walk along Constantia Nek, a contour path along Table Mountain that eventually leads to the beautiful Kirstenbosch Gardens. Along the walk, I noticed a few small landslides on Table ...

The annual Georneys “What to Buy a Geologist for Christmas” list is a little late this year. Sorry about that– I've been extremely busy recently, primarily with work. There are some changes afoot in my professional life– I'll provide an update on that when I can. I feel that December has just ...

There is one month until Christmas, so today I ordered a few holiday gifts online. I have to say, I love Amazon. Without Amazon holiday shopping would be much more difficult. On Amazon I can order gifts for my friends and fam...

This week's Monday Geology Picture shows the absolutely amazing “Painted Wall” of Black Canyon, which is located in Gunnison National Park in Colorado. The picture is courtesy of my friend Ray Hall. I've never been to Gunnison National Park, but the park is now high on my list of places I want ...

I feel very fortunate to live in such a beautiful city. This year my husband and I made more of an effort to explore Cape Town and its surrounds when our busy schedules permitted. In April I went for a few days to Grahamstown, South Africa to visit my husband, who was studying for six weeks at ...

I've been meaning for months to post some pictures from the LASI V Field Trip that I participated in just over a year ago in November 2012. However, despite my best intentions, I never ended up posting some field trip pictures. This is primarily because I lost all of my own LASI V field trip ...

For this week's “Monday Geology Picture” post I thought I'd share a picture that I took in Arches National Park in Utah back in 2005. This picture shows a rock feature known as “The Double Arch”. Stunning, isn't it? I apologize that blogging has been somewhat light recently.
