ABOUT ME




WATCHING FOR ROCKS 
ALONG THE HIGHWAY OF LIFE


  
Rocks have always  fascinated me --- so much so, in fact, that a few years ago I walked away from a 20-year career as a registered nurse, willingly crawled across the broken glass of calculus and physics (kicking and screaming through every math class), and obtained a degree in geology. Since then, I have worked 8 seasons with the National Park Service as an interpretive ranger. More recently I became reincarnated as an adjunct geosciences professor with our local university.  

This blog is for everyone who has ever gazed at the world around them – from massive mountains to the tiniest grain of sand and everything in between - and wondered, “What is that? How did that get there?”  

I hope you enjoy the adventure!  
Cheers, Nina
