As the sun sets on the old year and rises on the new, don't remain frozen in time like the sand dunes waiting to be broken down by nature. Seize the super moon and explore the corners and canyons of your life. What seems like a dead end, might just require a little more adventure.
Also #newyears at #lakepowell is one for the books!

Journal 28.12.2017
It's been a few weeks away from Malva physically - due to Final Paper submissions 📃 & workshop + visits in Switzerland 🇨🇭.
.
This impromptu photo from May 2017, reveals our first ever scheduled school-visit. To me, it captures how dreaming- may evolve into something bigger.. Follow-up will be the recent photos of the medicinal garden🌱. We happily just received special gifts made with our plants: Calendula cream and soap made by muharrem yalcin. .
🙋‍♀️ Grateful for @nazimtanrikulu for encouraging to achieve the first ever Fibonacci spiral herb design. @isilkayagul for bringing her class for the visit. The volunteers from @yeryuzudernegi and especially Kalin and Maria for their passionate and loving work.

Today's frosty fun at Stillwater Stables! Gabe stayed outside for a good hour of snow fun! Suzanne (friend and respite worker) found animal tracks in the snow and challenged Gabe to fill a barrel of snow and then dump it all out! She also introduced him to two new members of the Stillwater Family. The kittens were dumped in a rural location and adopted by their new family! If Gabe had his way, the feline brothers would be going home with him! I think he has his Aunt @the_rhonda feline loving genes!

We're those crazy homeschoolers out in the woods in 45 degrees & drizzle. This stand of white pines is beautiful, and we could breathe so deeply. 
Today's #hyggeschooling with @thehomeschoolsisters is #wood, and we peeled back layers of decaying branches, lugged teepee posts, and found lots of beautiful worm and insect patterns in fallen logs.

Shout out to @khalebyordan the man who took me out to the amazing pelagic bird trip yesterday! We got a handful of amazing species including Christmas Island Frigatebird, Milky Stork, Aleutian Tern and Parasitic Jaeger.

Khaleb and his brother @boasemmanuel are running a birding tour company called Jakarta Birder. If you are interested on such a trip, you can contact him at @jakartabirder

Rachel hammers a rock - could it be gold? It's probably just fools' gold (scientifically known as pyrite). The 9th grade field trip to Franklin, NJ was a great success.

While some of us were “working” at @stanleecomiccon this weekend, our awesome honors paleontology students had their Peccary Trip to collect fossils in Barstow, California! Not many high school students can say they have paleo field experience!.
.
First pic: @thewebbschools student, Gabe H. ‘20, found a small mammal arm bone on our field trip this weekend. We’re not quite sure what animal it is yet. But we’re bringing back to the lab for some clean up so our scientists can take a closer look!.
.
Second pic: Webb students collected small invertebrates and vertebrate fossils from the Miocene-aged Barstow Formation. That’s from about 15 million years ago!.

New day, new adventures! Day's highlights part 2: pod of wild dolphins 🐬🐬🐬 (pardon the terrible video quality please!) They were only feet from us,  slapping the water with their tails feeding. Is there anything better? 😍 I think not! The dark clouds in the sky ☁️🌧 made me nervous to go out today, but as always, nature taught me a valuable lesson - It's always worth braving the weather for a visit! As a thank you, the rain held off, I didn't turn fire engine red 🍅🦀🔥, and we were graced by some pretty amazing animals! Just about made up for some *ahem* extra 'sassy' students today 😜

New day, new adventures! Day's highlights part 1: big horse conchs 🐚 A student and a chaperone found a couple of these beauties earlier today! Scientific name Triplofusus giganteus, they are not actually true conchs though, just called them in common English names. They are the largest predatory marine gastropod (basically marine snail 🐌) in US waters, and one of the largest species of univalves (single shelled animal) in the world 🌎. They mostly eat other gastropods though, so don't be afraid to say hello! It was my first time seeing them at this spot, super pumped! *

The salmon are are finally coming to Bogus Creek! Salmon surveying will be soon! #YHS#salmon#IronGateFishHatchery#OutdoorScience#NaturalResources
Stumbled upon this poor chap on the tarred road in FRIM. Probably a juvenile, maybe slightly longer than the long plastic ruler we used to have in secondary school (what is SI anyway). Hazard a guess that this is the twin-barred tree snake (Chrysopelea pelias, of the Colubridae family). Alive, it's known as the flying tree snake for its ability to glide through the air, jumping from tree to tree. While widely distributed throughout Southeast Asia, sightings are apparently rare from what Google-fu tells me. Its habitat, while not under threat, seems to coincide with protected areas such as the Forest Research Institute Malaysia in Kepong.

While trying to ID the snake, I also came across similar looking ones like the coral snake (Very. Venomous.) and the scarlet king snake (not at all venomous). Nature is a hose teaser that way. Some actual Genius McPerson came up with a nifty riddle that could save your ass out in the wild: Red on yellow, kill a fellow. Red on black, friend of Jack. Your guess which snake is which.

This twin-barred tree snake is only mildly venomous however. Still pretty. Too bad your time on earth wasn't long, wee snake. Pleasure to have seen you.
