Los Alamos, here we come

This summer the family will be packing up and driving out to Los Alamos, New Mexico. (Actually I'll be doing the driving... Becky and Ethan are taking the plane.) I'll be doing some summer research at the Los Alamos National Laboratory (LANL) with the Digital Library Research and Prototyping group starting in June.

Los Alamos is a small town, approximately 45 minutes northwest of Santa Fe. It wasn't even on the map back in the days when they were developing The Bomb. As you can see from the map, it's pretty much a straight shot west from Searcy.

We're really looking forward to going out west, especially since it's unchartered territory for Becky and me (I'm from Denver, but I've only been to New Mexico once). And from what we hear, Los Alamos is a beautiful place to live. Some friends from church lived out there for several years, and they have nothing but good things to say about it.

So, if you're in the neighborhood, please look us up. Or if you have any suggestions of places we should go while we're out there, let me know. We're already thinking Denver and the Grand Canyon are 2 possibilities although Ethan hates car trips.
