Cross-Country Connections: Spiral

Cross-Country Connections is a Biodork weekly blog entry dedicated to telling stories in pictures of three family members – me, my sister and Mom – living in different locations across the country. Every week we choose a different theme and then take or contribute a personal photo that fits the theme. This week’s theme is Spiral.

From Erin in Takoma Park, Maryland: 

CCC Spiral ErinMy current work project is cataloging the dry mollusks in the Dept of Invertebrate Zoology. This beautiful specimen is a type of Trochid, a marine snail. 

From Mom in Hagerstown, Maryland:

CCC Spiral MomAn oldie but a goodie. Best time ever was the trip I made to England and France back in 2007. An entire six weeks! Behind me is a glimpse of the spiral staircases of the16th Century Chateau Chambord. They formed a double helix long before DNA was even imagined.

For more detailed information on this delightful example of Renaissance Architecture, see the Chateau Chambord Wiki.

From Brianne in Minneapolis, Minnesota:

CCC Spiral BrianneOn Sunday I startled a muskrat and a bunch of snail shells floated up from its push-up (its nest) in the reeds.
