Something Familiar....

So I was in the Denver Hyatt bathroom and thought that the tiles looked familiar! I wager they are Italian Ammonitico Rosso and Gaillo Reale!

Field Assistants

The best field assistant earns his keep by being awesome. Cherts can be a pain!

Leaving Italy...

I love seeing things from the air! Maybe this stems from Al Gorman's Air photo mapping classes or maybe it's just one of those things that geologists love... seeing everything from a bird's eye view!

Anyhow here are some shots from the airplane, they are only "phone quality" because sadly the good camera was in my backpack (which was in the overhead bin not under the seat).

Lagoons, marshes, and point bars in the Adriatic Sea

Venice! (Map here)

Look at all the little boats (pro tip, look for the wakes)!

Can you pick out the Grand Canale? You can almost see the gondolas!

This is the bridge that connects the island of Venice to the mainland

The mainland city of Venice
To top it off, while in Venice, I got a TOC email (table of contents from a scientific journal) about a new paper ABOUT subsidence in Venice: www.nature.com/

And last... the Alps under the clouds!
