Going to Wadi al-Hitan!

Lost Geologist has the right idea: it's always time for Field Work! Although Looking For Detatchment and All of My Faults Are Stress Related make a good point, in that the weather can kind of suck this time year. That's why I'm escaping to Egypt for a little a while. To here, specifically:



Sun, sand, and exposure; what more could you wish for?






I'm heading out, Thursday evening, to the Valley of the Whales to do some marginal marine sed/strat work. I'll be back around Dec 7, hopefully with some rad pictures to share. Until then, enjoy winter (Suckers!)

A beautiful beach with good drinks? ;-)

Me - my only wish is NOT to have rain and snow.

Have you seen Stefan Geens' Ogle Earth blog posts about his visit to Wadi al-Hitan (http://www.ogleearth.com/2007/05/whale_valley_po.html)? He blogs mostly about Google Earth and cutting edge neogeography tools, but he's got a good science background and he shot a nice set of photos there (http://flickr.com/photos/stefangeens/sets/72157600209298253/).

Sounds like a great winter place to go!

I don't usually post on your blog, but...
If I know you, you'll probably check your blog comments in the Cairo airport!
I hope you're safe and sound. By the time you read this you'll be on your way home with heavy suitcases full of rocks.
Come home soon! I'm jealous and I miss you!
