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!
