Derham has been so much in my heart today -- I found these 2 pictures from recent years on the White Mtn Plateau -- GLORIA'ites will recognize these.  

In my mind's eye, but not my camera's, is the image looking down this year from the GLORIA summit above Patriarch Grove to watch Jutta change a flat tire on Derham's truck.  He later said, "I don't know what I'd have done if Jutta hadn't been with me -- and what about when I'm out in the middle of NV?".  Thank you, Jutta, for helping him then

I'm so glad we honored him with recognition at the CEREC climate meeting in Bishop 2 years ago.  Derham was a gentle giant and outstanding naturalist.
