We were out in Ithaca to share the secrets of force detected NMR and plant a few seeds for the future and while John had us there, he wanted to show off how Ithaca is gorges. As they say. We were given bus passes to make our way up to Cornell and back down, but were encouraged to walk through the gorge back at least once, which we did. We also took a field trip one morning up to another of the local gorges. John (NY) didn't lead this one; I think it was Dan (IBM) who instigated it bringing along Dan (CIT) and John (UW) and a few of us helper bees in a couple of cars. It turns out the MRFM community values a moment surrounded by nature. We parked at the bottom and hiked up along the river, oohing and ahing the flows and chatting away.
