I recently retired as a Senior Lecturer in Geology and Geophysics from the University of Wyoming, Laramie, WY. I taught there for 33+ years. Although I maintain my Wyoming residency, last year I bought a "winter" residence in Denver where I had lived from 1974-1979. Since retiring from UW I have more time to devote to my consulting business and 2 of my 3 grandchildren. My house in Wyoming is located on a small river in the middle of a National Forest. Life is good.
