Spring is near

18 April 2012 · No Comments

The past couple of weeks, I have spent a lot of time out in the Caribou-Poker Creeks Research Watershed monitoring the snow ablation. The days have been amazing and the snow is (finally) starting to disappear. I can tell spring is near as I have my first blood stained page in my field book (from swatting a biting mosquito) and I have managed to swallow my first mosquito (from breathing a bit too hard after walking up a long hill). Along with the mosquitos, the streams and rivers are really starting to flow. It is amazing how fast things change from day to day.
