Field Trip Round 2

With a success percentage somewhere around 90, calculated by the loss of several students at the beginning who we eventually found somewhere near the middle of the trip, the Mojave adventure certainly ended with big grins, a beer & a burger at Bun Boy at Barstow - not with all the students of course...
Only one more to go this semester - time sure flies!!!

Birds, in a lava tube nest. Normally I only see a rat (of the pack kind) and a bat in here, but it seems that some feathered fliers moved in too.

Butterfly - died in a pool of salty salty brine. Makes for a pretty neat photo though.

Duck, not dead, swimming in a pool of salty salty brine... never seen a duck in the desert before.

Photos of the rest of the adventure can be found here.

I tried to get one of her jumping through the stream of light and dust in the lava tube but missed.

The butterfly is VERY cool.
