Winging my way home...

over northern Germany, barrier islands retreat in the distance in the southern part of the Baltic Sea, as I hop to Amsterdam in order to make a connecting flight into Seattle (click to enlarge).

I have to admit the highlight of this voyage wasn't really geological at all, but historical, and certainly cultural.  This experience filled a large void in my appreciation and understanding of the Baltic region in the wake of the early Vikings and Hansa, through WWII and the Cold War, and into present time.  I learned a lot from my fellow staff, traveled with interesting people, and had terrific fun doing so.
