One thing I’ve always wanted to learn more about is Earth Science and Mathematics. I’ve said for years, if I could live my life over and had wonderful supportive parents I would have become a scientist, more particularly a volcanologist. I can see me chasing, studying and exploring both dormant and active volcanoes all over the world.
I found these photos on the web.
I would also combine my earth sciences with mathematics. Math has always fascinated me and I am a natural at it.
Other earth sciences I’ve always been interested is weather particularly tornadoes and microbursts. Chris and I were in the woods in Colorado and we were in a microburst. I felt so energized by it. I had not heard of a microburst before then, so thankfully I had no idea to be scared. It literally takes your breath away as the wind swirls around you.
Driving back from to our campground, we followed some of the track of the microburst and big lodgepole pine trees were blown down in it. We were amazed that we didn’t get hurt or injured. I so enjoyed the moment. However, Chris having been a meteorologist in the US Army, knew we were in a bad situation.
The other area of earth science I could be interested in is earthquakes. But that kind of goes along with volcanoes since volcanoes cause earthquakes. Although the earthquakes I’ve experienced were in Southern California in the 1970s. Once again, I love watching the floors wave across the room and the walls shaking up and down in our apartment. Fortunately, I was in a building made for earthquakes.
This is an old photo I scanned in from a photo I took back in 1995ish. This is Sunset Volcano located in Arizona.
We visited Mt Lassen volcano in 1997. Here are a couple of photos from then as well.
I’ve gathered a list of challenges and their hosts. So if you know a challenge host, please direct them to my blog. Feel free to contact me anytime. I hope everyone will be able to use my lists.
