I've been eager for a chance to go trail running in the desert ever since last year's Death Valley weekend. It's a long drive, and I need an extra motivation to get out there - it came with the opportunity to help Dave Wyman teach our annual Route 66 Photo Workshop. The workshop didn't start till Sunday night, so I had a chance to spend all day Sunday running and exploring the slot canyons in the famous fossil beds north of Barstow... Owl Canyon Running
I'm the astronomy program chair at Cabrillo College near Santa Cruz, CA. An astronomy researcher for 30 years, an avid astrophotographer, nature photographer, and triathlete for just as long. I am also a trader in equities. I find a deep need to find, appreciate, and celebrate beauty in all its forms, and to understand myself and the World, and to share that understanding with my students and friends.
