Cool! A hand-held x-ray diffraction analyser to zap rocks! Even Spock didn't have one of these.

Interview with Leslie McCarthy

This was for UAF's Oral History Archives. I hold my thesis Leslie found with maps of Sugar Loaf etc

Checking out geochem reports I wrote years ago.

It is so strange to see my work still on the UAF library shelves.

It was interesting to see that my old master's thesis and several geological and geochemical reports that I wrote all those years ago were on the UAF library shelves just around the corner from where the library hosted my Fairbanks book signing. Coming home, indeed.

My last official book presentation/signing of my five-week whirlwind tour is down in Healy. They couldn't fit me in when I was driving through there a few days ago, so it's back on the road heading south, back down to the Alaska Range. Although l have meetings with people scheduled up until May 7th when I return to England, the Healy reading and signing is my last public book event. How fitting that the last official book event on the tour is in Healy which is about the closest town to Sugar Loaf, Jumbo Dome, and the Buzzard Creek Maars -- the mountains I mapped that became such a big part of my personal history. 
.
Although I have driven by the Healy turn-off many times, and have spent time at the Healy coal beds and up in the mountains, I have never been to the town of Healy and don't really know what to expect. 

Let's go see what it's like.
