Years before moving to Albuquerque, I was a young student in the northeast who had a fascination with dinosaurs and fossils.
My dad took myself and others to this annual geology fair that flaunted vendors of both amateurs and professionals selling everything from shark’s teeth and fossil imprints to jewelry and clothing.
I wanted to be a scientist from an early age and these sites nurtured my interest in the field, particularly with the natural sciences. I took physics and chemistry in high college however my real interests were with geology. Thankfully I found a great geology program at the University of AR in Fayetteville after applying to colleges all over the country. Once I finished my Bachelor of Sciences degree in AR, I moved to Albuquerque to be with my lady. The first thing that she advocated all of us do while I was in my initial weekend in the city was visit the Petroglyph National Monument. I wanted to both apply for a task and explore the site with my lady. All of us stopped at a cannabis dispensary in Los Volcanes on our way to the Petroglyph National Monument and obtained many cannabis vape pens with butane hash oil inside. This area is 17 miles of volcanic basalt and sits along Albuquerque’s western horizon. I felt incredibly blessed and grateful for getting a task at the Petroglyph National Monument. It’s terrible driving through heavy traffic on Interstate 40 everyday to get to work, however at least I get to drive over the Rio Grande River twice a day. I try to avoid using any cannabis until I get apartment because I don’t adore driving while I’m under the influence of the plant, especially if it’s strong weed.
