Estonia Geology Research Team in Place (More or Less)

June 30th, 2009

KOGUVA, MUHU ISLAND, ESTONIA–We are spending our first night together in a small model village (N58.59638°, E23.08559°) designed to show what farming life was like in 19th century Estonia. Our rooms have rough-hewn wooden walls, rope mouldings, and iron bedsteads. We’re a bit concerned that we will have to milk cows before breakfast. The weather is simply perfect.

In the photo below you see Bill Ausich (on the left), a paleontologist from The Ohio State University, Mark Wilson, Palmer Shonk, and Rob McConnell. You may see Rob in these clothes for awhile. In his epic journey here from Montana, his luggage has yet to arrive!

(Thank you, travel agent Suzanne Easterling!) We rented a car and then drove through impressive rainstorms westwards to the coast where we boarded a ferry for the island of Saaremaa. By dinner time we had checked into a little hotel in the small city of Kuressaare. We are the third team of Wooster geologists to work in Estonia. The last one was two years ago — one of the first expeditions covered by this blog. […]
