Washington D.C. and Baltimore

Ann and I flew to D.C. to attend her friend Katie's wedding on August 30th. While there, we were able to explore both D.C. and Baltimore while staying with friends of Ann's in both cities. We dashed through the capital mall, took the train to and from Baltimore, and ate some crab cakes (along with boatloads of other stuff) in Baltimore. The east coast feels like a foreign country, especially compared to Jackson, but we had a great time exploring. Thanks to Ann's pals Alex in Baltimore and Jon and Julie for housing us; we loved seeing the cities from your perspective.

new year = new students

I met my third class of graduate students at Teton Science Schools on August 24th. The biggest class yet of 24 students, is outgoing, smart, and motivated to absorb as much as possible in their 50 weeks in Jackson Hole. Things won't be the same without my friend Kevin Haspela around but Josh and I are excited to take on this new group of motivated students.
