Environmental memories: tongues stick to windshields in the winter; sun-warmed concord grapes taste best right off the vine; wastewater treatment plants dump water into rivers; girls can too climb trees; rocks are awesome; so are hurricanes; you can tell time by looking at the sun; à Paris on parle Français mais l’eau est toujours H2O; when you swim in the moon light, water feels so silky; east isn’t always towards New York City; geologists’ backpacks get heavier as the hike continues because the weight of rocks they add far exceeds that of the food they eat; in the Western US you can see the cold fronts coming but sometimes you can’t get off the climb; desiccation cracks make the coolest shapes; sand storms are amazing; science is the best thing of all because you can figure out something no one else knows and tell the world.
