Where's Moose – 07.15.07
Jake and I have been in the Alaskan Range for the past week working on a project on Collared Pika. With scientists from Univ of Alaska Fairbanks and Canada. a 3yr project looking at the pika is winding down. We are literally out in the middle of nowhere, living out of tents and our rental H3. We came into town to resupply for the next week out in the bush and I snagged a phone line using dialup to blog.
Why did I select this photo to blog with? So mom back home would see that I’ve not killed our youngest and in fact, he’s doing great on his first photographic assignment. While we both a bit water logged from all the rain, we’ve been with every critter AK has to offer and in the company of some really nice folks. This is the first project I’ve worked on in 30yrs where all the scientists were women. Kinda fun
The whole story on this adventure will be in vol 12.1 of the BT Journal. Vol 11.4 will be in the mail next week and 12.1 will be out early August.
