Menan Buttes

I helped lead a group of students on a field trip to the Menan Buttes last week. The weather was a lot nicer than the last tour I led and the group of students was awesome. They all seemed pretty fascinated and had a lot of good questions.

The rock man has been on the road. And when I haven't been gone, I've been studying hard-core, or spending time socializing.
So if you have been disappointed in my lack of content, I'm sorry. One day I'll post something amazing, and it will have been worth the wait.
