Trees/Animals in the Field Meme

I know, it's been a while since you have heard from me. I got married (woohoo!), moved to Houston for an internship (big oil), and am writing up some thesis stuff. I feel like I am working two jobs, sometimes three when my previous job calls me for advice! So, my presence from the geoblogosphere has been absent. I have been keeping up with everyone elses' posts though! We have matured into a wonderful community and it is getting hard to keep up with all the great posts.

Here are a few quick posts.

Tree Meme
I can't remember which blog brought this up (I did a search and it didn't come up, so sorry for not giving credit). An alternate origination of some dropstones were a tree washing out to the ocean and the root system still entangled rocks. As the wood rots, the rocks drop into the sediment below. It reminded me of this picture.

My picture of a tree's roots holding onto rocks is from the beach around Vancouver. While most of these rocks were probably placed their by beach-combers like ourselves, I can easily see how trees could transport rocks out to the deeper ocean sediments.

Animals (Domesticated or Not) in the Field Meme
Huge Bees! (2 inch wingspan)

Huge Owl!
(Yes, it's blurry, but it was so big I had to put the picture up. Standing this owl was almost 3 feet tall, sage brush for scale.)

Huge Dog!

And the best field assistant... Sorry other field assistants, she is the cutest and has been with me the longes :-)

Welcome back! Congrats on your internship. I was wondering why you were in Houston. Have fun with it all and enjoy the warmer weather!! Let us know if you come back through this way :)

It's good to hear from you. Congrats on getting married, and great about the internship. Sounds like a busy life, though.

Geotripper started the tree meme - I'll add a link to you on my posts.

I recently came accross your blog and have been reading along. I thought I would leave my first comment. I dont know what to say except that I have enjoyed reading. Nice blog. I will keep visiting this blog very often.

I just came across your blog - and it seems to have a thematic overlap with mine, so I thought I'd post a comment. Congratulations on your various evolutionary moves - my background is in the oil industry, so I'm always interested in the other end of the demographic spectrum from myself (only in terms of age, fo course). How are you getting on? Seen much sand recently??
