Several of my closest and most valued friendships started at Miramonte, and I'm proud and grateful to still have them 40 years later. We get together every few years, sometimes for several days of athletic "competition" and reminiscing. These photos were taken on the 18th green and on the baseball diamond at one of these mini-reunions. That's me holding the clipboard and wearing my MHS 20-year reunion tee shirt. My wife Linda is to my right and my parents are to my left. In the back row, from right to left, are Steve Fletcher (a Campolindo grad), Stu Myers, John Preston, Dan Walden, John's brother Bill (MHS '69), and (behind LInda) Stu's brother Ron (MHS '65). Last year we called our gathering the "Intercollegiate Alumni Olympics of 2006", and everyone played for his alma mater. (UC Davis came out on top).

Shortly after MHS it dawned on me that the major leagues weren't in my future (!), but I was lucky enough to discover geology and have worked all over the West studying rocks. Environmental geology, especially groundwater contamination, has been the focus since 1991, after stints in earthquake studies, oil exploration, and teaching. Years of tromping around in the mountains lured us to the backcountry of northern Idaho, where we settled in 2005.
