Beyond the Arctic Circle - Pre-Departure

16 March, 2019
Some insight into the part of my life that rarely makes it on social media-
I've just returned from a week long trip to the mountains of West Texas, making maps for my structural geology course. It was a week full of sunburned, blistered hands, and rough windstorms which led to a night without shelter. I'm tougher because of it.
It is with great pleasure that I announce that I've been called to do field work on an island very close to the North Pole. Since I was a little girl, it has been my dream to visit the far north and far south. This dream reminds me why I am still pursuing geology. I leave for Svalbard in June.
