More travel photos...

I'm glad to be home, sleeping in my own bed. But being on the road and doing research was a real treat. I have learned (the hard way) that rummaging archives takes longer than I'd imagined. I thought two weeks in one archive with one collection was way more than enough time... nope. I'll need to make another trip to finish up. I also learned (the hard way) that I will burn out staring at documents all day, and I need to take waaaay more breaks than I was.  This is all stuff I was told and thought I'd taken into consideration. Just not enough consideration, as it happens....

Ack - I know what you mean about over-doing it in the archives. My neck is still screaming at me frim all the time spent hunched over squinting at very old documents written in very tiny script. Brought back about 300 photos for later deciphering, too. Nice photos! The forest looks very pretty.
