Back In The Caldera

It’s been eleven days and 790 miles since my last post (does it sound like I’m confessing some grave sin here?). Well, I had to get where I was going, and I did travel 2oo sightseeing miles out of my way to get there. Plus it’s hard to type in a tent when an Idaho wind is threatening to blow you all the way to Kansas.

Finally, though, I made it. I am where I’m supposed to be for the summer. I could say I chose this date of a southwestern US solar eclipse  (which I will sadly not be in the direct path of) as some sort of cosmic re-entrance into the blogosphere. Actually the decision was pretty much random – I sat down at the table in my warm and funky government housing apartment this morning and started pounding out a post. There will be much more to come – I just wanted to get this little bit out. My computer is all set up and my camera has lots of extra batteries. 

I am back in the Yellowstone caldera!

    1. I'm working on it, Larry! Went hiking today in search of the elusive Yellowstone two-lipped beaver... Stay tuned!

  2. Welcome home. I took photos of the eclipse for you and will try to post soon. Busy here at the canyon. But you know how that goes.

    1. Looking forward to your photos, Gaelyn. Very too bad that I was not in a good spot to view it here in northerly YELL.
