Spring is here (almost) and yesterday I was back in the field. I spend too much time staring at the computer screen and it was great to be back out in the fresh air again. It reminded me of why it is great being a geologist. Also good to be with a group of very knowledgeable people who gave a great insight into reading landscapes. Interesting looking at the Quaternary for a change but missing a ‘decent’ rock outcrop by the end of the day – if it can be dug with a trowel it’s a bit too much like gardening for my liking.
