Pacific Northwest geobloggers and other folk interested in geology have a tremendous resource in Lockwood. He gives his knowledge freely, he’s always up for an adventure, and he knows all the awesome spots in Oregon. One of the best days of my life was the day he became my friend.
I talk about him a lot. You’ve seen his picture, you’ve gotten a taste of what it’s like to go field tripping with him, but images and text can only convey so much. So I recorded a snippet on our last outing, whilst we were up on Marys Peak. This will give you a sense of the firehose of geological information you’ll be drinking from if you ever get out in the field with him.
I plan to do a lot more of these next trip. Not only because I think some people will find them informative and fun, but because I want to capture these moments forever. Also, so I can go back and study later! When I’m with him, I wish I had a better memory.
I love every minute of it. I think this video is a good example of why, but it’s only the smallest part. If you ever get the chance to go out and explore with Lockwood, don’t hesitate. Do it.
