Geo 730: March 17, Day 441: Walking the Cut

Another shot by Dana, from this post. I've gone into "scan mode" here. Many people conflate the meaning of "scan" with that of "skim," incorrectly. Scan means to examine intently, skim, to examine at a glance, superficially. Here, I'm amused by how fixated I apparently am on the rocks. I love this state of mind. I'm simultaneously alert to my total environment and focused intensely on a very narrow aspect of it. I think geology is about as close to nirvana as one can get. With hammers.
