Farewell, Red Butte Canyon!

Today was officially my last day in the field on my Wildlife Trails of the American West expedition, and I can hardly believe it! I have learned more in the past week than I could have ever imagined, and I have truly enjoyed sharing my new knowledge with students, colleagues, family, and friends through this blog.

After yesterday's rigorous day, our scientists Eric and Bill thought we should take it easy today. We certainly didn't complain! Our team only visited the canyon for a couple of hours to take a few last minute measurements, and I spent the rest of the day in my warm hotel room inputting our data into a Microsoft Excel spreadsheet. Tonight we are heading out for a special team dinner in Salt Lake City to culminate our week-long study, so this posting will not be as extensive as some of my others. I am creating a slideshow with over 75 pictures that I can't wait to show everyone back at school though.

Do you notice the Marymount bunny under the "No Hunting" sign? He was in my backpack for good luck every day!

Dear Ms. LeSage,
I can't wait to see you back at Marymount!
I am glad that you got a day to relax. As for the answer to the riddle, the rope wasn't tied to anything.

Dear Ms.LeSage,
I can't wait to see you tommorow at Marymount!Did you enjoy your time in Utah?
In the past week I've learned so much from your blog (it all sounded like a very exciting and interesting week). Are you sore from all that hiking in Red Butte? It has been fun with Mr.Downey, but no one can ever replace you!

Hi Paige,

I'm so happy to hear that you read my whole blog :-) Thanks so much! The best parts of my trip were the challenging hikes and the Mule Deer. Did your little sister tell you I Skyped with her? She's so cute!
