Ending my summer stint in Albuquerque, NM. Some useful research came out of the experience, but it was more worthwhile for the people and the area. Though Albuquerque may be the slowest of cities to live in, the natural scenery is a major draw to return some day.
I added some photos to Flickr from hiking trips into the Sandia mountains and into the lava parks of El Malpais.
Time to be heading back to _flat_ Illinois and picking up graduate studies. Courses this semester include abstract algebra, advanced probability and statistics, computer security, and a security seminar. With the added ‘bonus’ of research, life should be fairly busy. Too bad the mountains wont be right outside to escape into.
