Darkness Descending by Ken Jones (June 30-July 4)
Shattered Air: A True Account of Catastrophe and Courage on Yosemite's Half Dome by Bob Madgic (July 5-8)
Antarctica by Kim Stanley Robinson (July 8-24. Loved!!! A novel, but full of Antarctic history, and lots of mentions of Apsley Cherry-Garrard, who wrote The Worst Journey in the World)
Enduring Patagonia by Gregory Crouch (July 24-27)
Glaciers by Alexis M. Smith (July 27-28. This book was a LIE..it only mentioned glaciers a couple times..FAIL. lol)

Today I was reading about trees growing on glacier moraines and then I came across THIS sentence: "Where the tongue of Allen Glacier licked the Copper River..." Hilarious mental image of a glacier with a real tongue licking the river like a dog haha!!

I'm kinda in denial that it's August. D: Where did the summer go??

List three words to describe your dream house )
