Yesterday we completed our fifth state park hike. This time it was Sakatah Lake State Park. The area is surrounded by farmland, so we were quite surprised to find a hiking trail with significant elevation changes. We squeezed this hike in before the snow this winter!

Although I have many years of formal education, most of what I've learned has come from experimenting and trying to solve problems on my own. Once an idea for a project is set in my mind, it is all-consuming and one must learn everything possible about the subject on the way to the outcome. For learning is more than reading books and spoken word, it is hours of frustration, trial and error, and one sudden flash of insight when the world magically makes sense. It is during this moment when I am truely alive.
