Successful Trip? Most definitely
Fieldwork in British Columbia was hard. We covered a lot of ground both in transit and during hikes, made a number of pillow descriptions, and brought back more samples than we had initially intended. It was also cold, it rained, it snowed, it hailed, the wind blew, bears roamed near camp, and the talus slopes were unforgiving. But it never felt like work because each day was met with laughter, learning, beautiful sunsets, Nutella, and a definite feeling of accomplishment. It is so difficult to explain just how amazing our time in British Columbia was, because it was one of the most unforgettable experiences ever. The images below allow for a visual story of our trip, when words simply don’t suffice.
Spectacular images, Meagen! What a great trip. Except for the ice and snow, that landscape shot of the cinder cones could be from the Mojave. That gives me a warm and toasty feeling.
No photos of the bears? Team Utah demands a pic or it didn’t happen.
No worries, Team Utah. You will have your bear post. Would you prefer black bears or grizzlies? How about both?!
Dr Judge wants you to post a pic of a bear “with Dr. Pollock for scale.”
