The Roads I Travel – Dzilth-Na-O-Dith-Hle Wilderness Area

This was my first experience with adding watermarks to a photo using an app.  I had just purchased my first smartphone and, suddenly, everything I ever wanted to do to a picture was available at my fingertips.  I still didn’t know how to add my own signature, so I used the app font.  

I love this picture and everything that it represents. It’s my “Welcome Home” landmark.  30 more miles and I’ll be home.

Measurement and Discovery

Fishing with grandchildren at a mountain lake in Southern Colorado.

This is my first attempt to add a picture to a post.  I suppose I could watch a You Tube video to learn how to do this correctly, but I enjoy fiddling with buttons to see what they do.  This is  the nature of scientific discovery.  Hypothesize, experiment, and notate  progress.  I read on the Los Alamos website that Enrico Fermi noted, “Regarding the nature of scientific discovery, there are two possible outcomes: if the result confirms the hypothesis, then you’ve made a measurement.  If the result is contrary to the hypothesis, then you’ve made a discovery.”

This morning, I have my first measure.
