I attended Pomona College intending to major in the social sciences. After brief stints in Pueblo archaeology and Constitutional law, I tried out an intro geology class and fell in love with the Mojave Desert. Then, while studying abroad at the University of Edinburgh I registered at the last minute for a class in the Geography department called “Eroding Landscapes: Mountains, Hills and Rivers” and now I’m here.

Here is a particularly good river flowing in the Owens Valley with some newly-fallen snow on the Sierras.
