After 2000 miles, $2000 in car repairs (mostly deferred maintenance to be truthful that I decided to get done all at once), hiking in Arches National Park and getting hailed upon during a thunderstorm while doing so, seeing my first Yellow-headed blackbird in southern Idaho, visiting the John Day Fossil Beds National Monument in central Oregon, and other various adventures, I am only one short drive to Seattle away from beginning my summer research trip and thus am more or less back on the blog.
