The Almaden Experience
Thought that I'd post some pictures from the Almaden Labs today. The dichotomy of being able to see both the futuristic profile of the Almaden Research Center and a group of cows grazing in the sun takes a bit of getting used to, but I can't say enough about how incredible it is to be here. While we're inside the building we are constantly being exposed to distinguished speakers and inventors, all of whom are generous enough to share their time and entertain our questions. When we get the chance to go outside the building, the views of the mountains and valleys and the landscape are just as invigorating. From the entrance to the ARC we can see several buildings (on neighboring ridges) that look like observatories. It's a reminder that even though we've come a long way to get here, there is a considerable distance yet to go...
