The neverending trek

Yesterday we hiked all over hell and back on the first field area. The field area is about 2 km by 1.5 km and we have to make a geological map of the entire area. It's all limestone that nearly looks the same but there are (allegedly) 5 different units. We wandered aimlessly for several hours thinking we were in one unit while we were actually in another.

Tip..bring lots of water. When they say 4 liters, they mean it. We walked from one end of the area to the other to get to "Enlightenment Point" which happened to be on the opposite end of the site as the vehicles managing to completely drain my Camelback. Nice little hike :)... by the time I got back to camp everything hurt. But bright eyed and bushy tailed this morning.

Next tip...if you actually want to share music with you MP3 player, the easiest thing to do it with is an iPod, not a different brand like I got. My MP3 player is a 30 GB Creative Zen. It's a great player but everything here is iPod and (deleted expletive) iPod equipment doesn't talk to anything else.
