Out of this World

I heard of this place called Wheeler Geologic Area in a magazine. It is in the middle of Colorado far from the big towns. It is the result of possibly the largest volcanic eruption in earth's history about 26 million years ago. The ash that erupted could completely fill Lake Michigan.

No Longer Possible

Thanks to Christian' s Facebook I now have memories that can no longer be replicated.
RIP 248!

The Earth is an Office

It is nice to have job and get to see this two days a week. Ute Pass, CO.

This is the view from a sampling point at the Mill. Not a bad office.

Shred the Earth for Molybdenum

Working at a mine is really cool and interesting. This picture is near the end of a 15 mile conveyor belt that starts 1,000's of feet underground at the mine. It crosses under the continental divide and goes for 5 miles above ground to the mill. Where does everything come from? The Earth.
Read about the Henderson Mine and molybdenum.

Back to Work!

I am lucky and fortunate to have found a job about 2 months after coming home from the big trip. I definately worked hard to find it and the hard work has paid off. The company is Aquionix and they do a variety of environmental work for many types of cleints. My shredding will now be limited but that is the price I must pay.

Bear Video

Koala bears eat leaves and sleep. This one happened to be eating when we saw him and it was really cool to see him in his element. The Great Ocean Road, Australia.

The Earth is Alive

While driving through Big Sur, California we came upon a traffic jam. We sat, talked and looked at the beauty. After sitting in the jam for 15 minutes at a stand still we saw this. It makes you realize that the Earth can eat you and your car. Respect your surroundings.

Alley Art

When you are busy and full of stress just get on your bike. Your life will be better for it. Hit a jump or 29 too.
The coolest alley in Christchurch, NZ.

The Best Place?

Every one that I speak with about our trip asks, "What is the best place?" As you can see, the best place was New Zealand. The country is the most scenic and pristine place ever. The people are kind and the dirt jumps looked so good. I would love to get back there someday but I will be happy with just going through the photos every so often too.
