Little Si

After a few weeks on flat land, we got an itch & so drove up to some mountains on Sunday.

Pretty warm out, so we were happy to see that most of the trail was shaded.

That's Mount Si there in the background.

In other news, I've been working on this Aristotle project...
Some two thousand years before Darwin, Aristotle wrote about something that sounds an awful lot like natural selection. (It's the second paragraph of Part 8, if you follow that link. Sorry that I can't find a way to jump right to that section...)

Of course, he goes on to reject the view, but still!

Been trying to have some fun with the research process (not that it's not already fun, but you know). Last week I ended up going to the library to look at some books on Aristotle, photographing the important parts with my phone, and then reading them on the iPad:
Speaking of, better get back to it. Cheers!
