FIRST, a couple photos from my morning walk. It’s a cool, gray, misty day, and autumn is definitely here.
SECOND, a reminder that International Rock Flipping Day is Sunday. Participating is easy and fun, whether you have your own blog or not! Details here.
THIRD, a week from Sunday I’ll be leaving for a week-long backpacking trip in Porcupine Mountains Wilderness State Park. For work. Don’t you wish you had my job? Anyway, that obviously means I’ll be unplugged from the internet for an entire week, and I thought I’d see if anyone would be interested in writing a guest post for this blog to appear while I’m gone. The requirements would be pretty simple – write a little something (say, 200ish words? but very flexible) about the natural history of the area where you live or somewhere you’ve traveled to, and illustrate it with at least one photo you took yourself. If you have your own blog, I’ll gladly link back to it, but this is also an opportunity for anyone who doesn’t have their own blog but has a favorite photo or nature fact to share.
If you might be interested, get in touch with me sometime in the next couple days using the “Contact Me” link above. If I don’t get any takers I’ll either pre-schedule some posts of my own or just let the blog go dark for a week. Not a big deal either way, but I thought I’d throw the possibility out there!
Update – I’ve already had about four replies to this, which will be more than enough for a week. Thank you so much!
