Oh the places we'll go....


The Adirondacks have treated us very well and we are on our way to the next adventure along the NW coast of Oregon. However, before we complete our 3,000 mile cross-country-venture to start surveying Spotted Owls, we thought we'd share some more pictures from this winter.....


Wintery Sunset. This was a winter full of snow for Ben and I, however as far as the Adirondacks go, it was a below average year for snowfall.




Using telemetry to triangulate the position of collared martens.







One of the collared martens so conveniently posed on a log after releasing him from a trap.




Elk Lake, a nearby study area with stunning views of the High Peaks.





Martens Martens Martens!





After the new year, snowmobiles were a daily necessity....of course, we had absolutely NO fun riding them around every day :)




Beautiful coat on a candid American Marten.



We made a trip into Boston to visit some friends and ended up making a few more at the Aquarium...


Hello.




A really neat display of jellies.... we spent hours gazing at them and taking pictures. A life size lava lamp.

Speaking of jelly.....in this video the marten is rewarded after time spent in the trap


“What is the feeling when you're driving away from people, and they recede on the plain till you see their specks dispersing? -it's the too huge world vaulting us, and it's good-bye. But we lean forward to the next crazy venture beneath the skies." - Jack Kerouac


See you in Oregon....
