I think my body is really
starting to adjust to this extensive hiking through deep snow, as today seemed
to fly right by! Our lead scientist was
confident that all of the team members could navigate the mountain effectively
using a GPS, so he paired us up, gave us several data sheets to complete, and
sent us off! I felt like a true explorer!
I was not lucky enough to
see any new wildlife during today’s adventures, but I did hear a coyote
gathering and it was unlike anything I’d ever heard before. I also discovered
some fresh tracks that provided evidence of mammals nearby. Rather than tell
you what those tracks were, I thought it would be fun to let you try and
guess them. You may comment on this post
with your guesses, and I will reveal the correct answers in my blog tomorrow.
