Hello, Beautiful People!
My apologies for the 6 month hiatus. I haven’t gotten around to typing much since I discovered the connection between Emily Dickinson and Harry Potter. I could give you a detailed account of my life in that time, but I think I’ll just go with, “I bagged a lot of groceries,” and leave it at that.
Now, though, I’m foreseeing LOTS of new blog posts because (drum roll, please ./././././././)
I’m going to spend the next 5 months as a botany intern in the Mojave Desert! That means new sights to see, a new ecosystem to learn about, new plant species to identify, and lots of new roads to get lost on! Oh, and I start on Monday.
I set off from Phelps, WI this morning with my mother at 7AM. We drove for most of the day and ended up in Des Moines, IA. According to Google, we only need 24 more hours of straight driving time before we make it to our end goal of Needles, CA by Friday evening!
The plan for tomorrow is to drive for 13 hours! I’ll hopefully report back then!
JOURNEY TO THE MOJAVE DESERT–DAY 1
HOURS DRIVEN: 9
