From the tide pools to the mountains

In the last week, I’ve visited two cool environments: the tide pools at Bird Rock, La Jolla and Palomar Mountain! At the former, I got to see an octopus attempt to drag a GoPro into the rocky crevice it was inhabiting, and at the latter, I checked out the 200 inch Hale Telescope at CalTech’s Palomar Observatory. Exploring new¬†research never fails to get me excited about science!
