Well, it looks like I'm a-movin'. Yessirree, it seems like 57th time is the charm. I thought things went well with the interview in Michigan, and I was right, for they offered me the job, and I have accepted it. So, look out Michigan, the Adirondack Naturalist is moving in!
Of course, this means I have to find a place to live first, so today I was on the road again. I got a late start, and had to detour to my folks' house to drop of their hairy grandson (dog-sitting), so I've been on the road for 13 hours. Stiff and sore. I'm looking forward to a good night's rest and tomorrow I will head into Michigan and start looking for new digs.
Meanwhile, here is the view near Blue Mountain this morning. I just couldn't resist pulling over and unearthing the camera to snap a shot of the line where the snow started on the mountainside.
It's all about elevation, eh?
Fortunately, the snow was all up and it was smooth sailing on the road.
Now I know, you are all going to bemoan the loss of the Adirondack Naturalist blog. But fear not - I will still be blogging. I haven't left the Adirondacks yet, and I just really enjoy keeping a nature blog too much to completely give it up.
Sure, it will mutate into a Michigan Naturalist blog, but it may be "An Adirondack Naturalist in Michigan", kind of like "An American in Paris." Yes, it will be a different state, a different zone, and different habitats, but nature discovery remains the same the world over. And the good naturalist is keen to travel and learn new things!
So, stay tuned. There's still more to come on the Adirondacks, but the Midwest will be popping up here and there to get you all used to the change.
