Dramatis persona*

helenhead Helen Chick

I've always wanted a bumper sticker that said "I'm a female, LDS/Mormon, Scout leading, geocaching, piano-playing, bicycling, mathematics educator with a PhD in maths ... and I VOTE"!

The day was also a […]

Moods of the Mountain #6

I’m not sure if there’s something special about the last three weeks, but they have been good for moody effects on the mountain (it also helps that the days are longer, which means that it is no longer dark most of the time I’m at home and awake!). These photos are essentially presented in order from […]
