I hope so. Thanks for sticking around through my absence from the blogosphere. I’ve got several posts worth of pictures from the month-long research road trip Boh and I returned from yesterday. Here’s a sampling of the whole thing, minus our weekend adventure with brokeknits — I’ve got enough pictures to turn that into its very own post!
First up? A self-portrait at Forest Park’s Grand Basin in St. Louis. Funny how temperatures rising to 106 degrees meant that I had the place to myself…
Boh loves hotels.
Walking dogs in the bosque.
Boh and I stick our paws/toes in the Rio Grande.
A morning walk in the foothills of the Sandias, on Albuquerque’s eastern side. Boh totally remembered the desert.
A view of the Sandias from the top of one of the volcanos on the west side.
Mount Allegra, the mountain in the backyard of the folks I call my New Mexico family.
Driving west on I-40 into a summer storm. (When all the big rigs pulled over, so did I. About half an hour of rain, hail, thunder, and lightning, and things began to brighten.)
There was a lasso in my room in Camp Verde, Arizona.
More bosque walking with Boh.
Flowers among the cottonwoods.
An awkward self portrait, mid-stroll.
My makeshift office on the back porch of my best friend’s house outside DC.
The Rock Creek Trail offered Boh and I a bit of shade and a nice break from working. It reminded me of home.
Amidst all the driving and outdoor frolicking, I also managed to get quite a bit of research done. (You know what else I did? Eat! I’ve got a whole series of food pictures I promise I’ll share soon.) Boh and I had a wonderful trip, but a month is a long time to be on the road, and I think we’re both very happy to be home.
