The Point of Natural Selection

Wednesday,  01/01/03  01:58 AM

The picture in the masthead is a composite panorama taken at "The Point of Natural Selection", while mountain biking on the SlickRock trail in Moab, Utah.  I like it because:

  1. The point is beautiful and amazing and impressive and thought-provoking
  2. It is a great name, with several intertwined meanings
  3. It captures a memory of a terrific trip
  4. I am an adamant Darwinist
  5. It is a cool picture.
