1920 - 2017

This page is a small tribute to my grandfather who passed away at the age of 96. I will always remember his sweetness. He was a geologist, and was known for his contribution to the mapping of much of the Death Valley region. His crappy/awesome house in Shoshone California is a place I'll always remember as the launching-off point for our adventures—caving through ash tubes, hunting for crystals and opals, searching for trilobites, and going where almost no one had gone before throughout the mountains of one of the most beautiful places on the planet. I miss you Granman.
