My net search also included Prismacolor pencils. I read some histories and found that Prismacolor is no longer made by Berol, and that they currently produce 150 colors.
Last, I'm gathering notes for a possible book on my educational experiences. One of my strongest memories from 1st grade is that my teacher posed the question: What comes after yellow? Back then I said "that's a stupid question" or words to that effect. If I were a first grader today, I might answer "a funeral."

This merger of two streams on Table Mountain got my attention. Saw very few wildflowers and decided that maybe the peak of flower blooming is a couple or three weeks away. I'll try again in mid-April. This Y reminded me of the junction of the Little Colorado and the main Colorado in northeastern Arizona. A totally different habitat, of course, but all river junctions interest me and remind me of each other. Another one I love and will see again in May is the junction of two great rivers in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, where the great Lewis and Clark expedition began and where Annie Dillard grew up. A special city where my daughter is currently an art professor. Looking forward to the road trip.
